Dubbed the “world’s fastest road race,” the Ulster Grand Prix takes place this upcoming weekend at the 7.4-mile Dundrod Circuit just west of Belfast in Northern Ireland.

Due to injury sustained at the Southern 100 in July, Conor Cummins appearance at the 2015 Ulster GP was questionable. But that changed on Monday when Honda Racing reported that Cummins will pilot the HRC CBR1000RR Fireblade SP during the Southern GP.

Conor Cummins is no stranger to the Ulster Grand Prix; he had won a Superbike race there in 2009, and was a former record holder.

Cummins will pilot the CBR1000RR in the three Superbike races – one on Thursday, August 6, and two on Saturday, August 8.

Speaking of the Ulster GP, Conor Cummins says: “I cannot wait until first practice next week on the Superbike! The Ulster GP is one of my favorite races and after missing it last year due to my injury I’m even more eager to get going this year. I’m hoping to finish the international road racing season on a high and the Honda CBR ticks all the boxes for me, and I just can’t wait to get on it.

“I’ve had a good track record at the Ulster in the past with a lap record and a win in 2009; so I’m hoping I can repeat that success this year. It’s a proper fast course and excites me every time I get to race there, and the Fireblade is well suited to its fast flowing nature.”
