by / Wednesday, 07 August 2019 / Published in Blog / News, Other News, Road Racing

Smiths BMW rider Peter Hickman dominated the opening Fonacab Ulster GP Superbike practice today, going almost 5s faster than Conor Cummins in second place.

Hickman put in a 131.237mph lap on his S1000RR to top the session with Cummins’ Milenco by Padgett’s Honda Fireblade in second on a 128.299 lap. Davey Todd took his Penz13.com BMW to third place before a rain shower brought the action to a halt with nine minutes remaining.

Hickman made a lengthy pit stop after the third lap to lower his S1000RR’s gearing but failed to improve his time as the conditions worsened.

Lee Johnston managed a 127.395 on the Ashcourt BMW for fourth with Dean Harrison’s Silicone Kawasaki in fifth. Newly-crowned Irish Superbike Champion Derek Sheils put the Burrows Suzuki in sixth, one ahead of Paul Jordan.

The injured Michael Dunlop put in a 126.671 for eighth with Honda’s David Johnson in ninth place. Jamie Coward completed the top ten with a 124.683 on the Prez Yamaha.

Phil Crowe, Michael Sweeney, Sam West, Brian MacCormack and David Jackson rounded out the top 15.
