Ulster GP circuit, Dundrod, now in Ride 4

The Ulster Grand Prix circuit, Dundrod, is now playable within the Ride 4 video game. As part of a free update to the game, players on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series can now ride the high-speed 7.3 mile closed road circuit.

Ulster GP circuit, Dundrod, now in Ride 4

For those who love motorcycle road racing – the mental motorsport where superbikes and closed roads combine – then the Ulster GP is a special place.

With Ride 4 devoid of the Snaefell Mountain Course that makes up the famous Isle of Man TT, it has doubled down on other famous circuits from the mad world of motorcycle racing. There’s the Macau street circuit plus the closed road routes of the North West 200, Imatra (Imatranajo) and Southern 100.

These are now joined by the Dundrod Circuit. The high-speed loop is 7.3 miles around the area close to Belfast, Northern Ireland, and was previously in Ride 3. Part of the Bonus Pack 06 for the game, it’s free for everyone on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series and available now.

Alongside the new track, which is available to ride online and in single-player modes, the pack also includes five new events for the Career mode. If you visit the World League and then the Invitational tab, there’s the Ulster GP Master event set.

This free addition sits alongside a long list of post-release support for Ride 4, combining a paid Season Pass, but also regular free content. Last week, the paid 600cc Passion DLC was launched and the week before that, a Racing Modified Honda CBR300R was added for free.
