July 16, 2019

To kick-start the 97th Ulster Grand Prix Bike Week, Lisburn City Old Vehicle Club are inviting you to join their Classic Car and Motorcycle Parade on Monday 5 August. The event is being run in partnership with Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council.

The event will begin at Lagan Valley Island at 6pm, where a range of vintage motorcycles and cars will be on display - reinforcing the strong historical association that the Lisburn district has with road racing. The vehicles will then head off to the UGP Pits area on the Dundrod circuit at 7.15pm, where refreshments will be served.

Organisers are keen to gather as many classic vehicles as possible, with all proceeds raised from the event going to the Mayor’s Nominated Charity - Air Ambulance NI.

The Mayor of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council, Councillor Alan Givan, said: “Bike Week is an exciting opportunity for the city to take pride in its strong heritage of road racing. We are delighted to be supporting this event once again and encourage as many people as possible to take part and help raise much needed funds for Air Ambulance NI.”

Alderman James Tinsley, Chair of the Leisure & Community Development Committee at Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council, said: “We’re looking forward to seeing all the vintage cars and bikes on display and to once again welcome this event to the city and show our support for the Ulster Grand Prix.”

Entry fee for the event is £6 for a vehicle and driver and £4 each for other passengers. Prices include supper.
