Overview:Days of Thunder: The History of the Ulster Grand Prix - The Ulster Grand Prix holds a special place in the hearts of motor cycle road racing fans from all over Ireland and further afield. Steeped in nostalgia, the name in itself conjures up memories of some of the truly outstanding races in the history of the sport, and the riders who have been legends in their own time: Duke, Woods, Agostini, Read, McCullough, Dunlop, Jefferies - to name but a few. Since the first race was held at Clady in 1922, 'the Ulster' has been the highlight of the Irish road racing year. In 1953 its venue changed to the Dundrod circuit: this has been Irish motor cycle racing's 'theatre of dreams' even since. The event was accorded world championship status in 1949, but this revoked in 1971. More recently, Dundrod has hosted rounds of the Formula 1, 2 and 3 world championships. Yet whatever the changing fortunes of the Ulster Grand Prix, the faithful continue year in year out to make their annual pilgrimage to the fastest motor cycle track in the British Isles. Days of Thunder tells the story of the men and their machines, and the epic feats of skill, courage and endurance that have enthralled generations of race fans. The author's passion for and knowledge of his subject shine through on every page. He captures the pace and excitement of the races and the enigmatic glamour of some of the sport's key figures, and brings the reader a true sense of 'the Ulster's' long and distinguished history. Meticulously researched and packed with the sort of facts and figures which enthusiasts will find compelling, this book is the definitive guide to the Ulster Grand Prix. Exclusive interviews with some of the true greats bring added drama to the text. A magnificent selection of previously unpublished photos from the archives of the best photographers in the field will have motor cycle buffs drooling.
