Tyco BMW’s Guy Martin crashed while leading on the final lap of the Dundrod 150 Superbike race at the Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix on Thursday.

Martin was narrowly ahead at the time from Kiwi Bruce Anstey, with Honda Racing’s Conor Cummins in third.

Lincolnshire star Martin’s injuries have been reported as not serious by the organisers and his Tyco BMW team later tweeted that he had not sustained any broken bones in the incident.

The race was red-flagged, with Kiwi Anstey (Valvoline Padgetts Honda) declared the winner from Manxman Cummins by 4.7 seconds and Louth’s Peter Hickman in third (Briggs Equipment BMW).

Dan Kneen finished fourth on the second of Clive Padgett’s Honda machines, 12 seconds down on the winner, with Keith Amor (Rig Deluge Honda) and William Dunlop (Tyco BMW) completing the top six.

Lee Johnston, Ian Hutchinson and Michael Dunlop were among the retirements.
