Join us for the official, action-packed review of one of the most scintillating seasons of road racing ever. This is the best between-the-hedges racing from four of the fastest and most demanding meetings on the 2009 calendar, filled with heart-pounding highlights from the hardest-fought races.
Follow Ryan Farquhar’s path to yet another victory in the Duke Road Race Rankings series, experience the new generation of Dunlop brothers keeping the family rivalry alive and witness some of the closest finishes in history – including a 0.001 second gap at the chequered flag!
First up is the Cookstown 100, and what a curtain-raiser the County Tyrone meeting proved. From the off it was all about Farquhar versus Keith Amor on the big bikes and Michael against William in the two-stroke battle of the Dunlops. Exceptional footage, including plenty from on the bikes of Amor, Conor Cummins and John Burrows, brings you all the breathtaking highlights from six races.
Next we travel to Tandragee for another five elbow-to-elbow contests. The battle lines are re-drawn as we enjoy fast and furious thrills from the 125s and 250s, the Superbikes, Supersports and Supertwins – with Farquhar, Amor and the Dunlops again in the thick of it. Multiple on-board camera angles with flying Scot Amor show you exactly how close the racing was!
The Billown Circuit on the Isle of Man hosted the Southern 100, and laid on some of the tightest racing possible. With grids swollen by the likes of Ian Lougher, Guy Martin and Chris Palmer, the scene was set for spectacular action – and the cameras were there to capture it. You will be on the edge of your seat as the Supersport 600 is decided by just 0.047 of a second, a last corner lunge earns victory in the Senior Solo Founders and the unpredictable Solo Championship race goes right down to the wire.
Our season review concludes at Dundrod with the Ulster Grand Prix. The International event attracted more stars, including Ian Hutchinson and Bruce Anstey, and produced nail-biting racing. Just tenths – and I one case thousandths – of a second made the difference as the fastest road race in the world lives up to it’s reputation. Once again, the cameras were there to capture all the spectacular action – including on-board footage which will have you leaping out of your seat.
Alongside the white-knuckle action footage, we have interviews with all the stars, a chat with road racing legend Phillip McCallen and complete on-board laps courtesy of Amor and the Dunlop brothers Michael and William.
