Heavy mist led to a delay of more than three hours at the MCE Ulster Grand Prix on Thursday.

With poor visibility around the Dundrod course, the first practice session for Superstock machines didn’t take place until more than three hours after the roads closed at 10am.

It is now intended to run the Dundrod 150 National race, followed by a practice session of 40 minutes for the Ulster Grand Prix Superbikes.

The Dundrod 150 Lightweight race will then be held followed by a 30-minute UGP Supersport practice session.

The day will conclude with the Dundrod 150 Supertwins and Superbike events. The new Superpole qualifying session for the Superbike class seems unikely to go ahead.

Thursday’s revised schedule:

Dundrod 150 National Race

UGP Superbike practice

Dundrod 150 Lightweight Race

UGP Supersport practice

Dundrod 150 Supertwin Race

Dundrod 150 Superbike race
