It was all about one man on Wednesday as Peter Hickman completed a clean sweep in the Superbike, Superstock and Supersport practice sessions to raise expectations ahead of Saturday’s MCE Ulster Grand Prix.

Hickman has already lapped at 132.453mph on the Smiths BMW and should further dry weather prevail at Dundrod, the Smiths Racing rider believes the lap record – held by Ian Hutchinson at 134.089mph – could even be pushed close to 136mph.
