Honda Racing has confirmed that Guy Martin will not compete at next month’s MCE Ulster Race Week.
Organisers of the international road race had expected that Guy would be ready and raring to go for racing at Dundrod – but Honda team bosses have confirmed today that he will not take part.
Clerk of the Course at the MCE UGP, Noel Johnston said: “Naturally I’m disappointed to have the news confirmed by Honda that Guy won’t race at Dundrod next month, but it’s not altogether surprising given the difficulties the team has experienced throughout the season.”
“I had hoped for a different outcome, as Guy is obviously a big fan favourite, and he’s never made any secret in the past of his love for the circuit, which after all is the international where he’s had the most success over the years.”
Nevertheless, even without Guy, it’s sure to be an action packed week of top quality racing. Peter Hickman, Michael Dunlop and Dean Harrison in particular have put in some incredible performances on the roads this season, and with a wide open field and everyone hoping to end their season on a high and make their mark at the ‘world’s fastest road race’, we can’t wait for the action to get underway.
