Dynamic images from Dundrod as riders make last minute preparations before competing in the famous road race.
The 1956 Ulster Grand Prix marked the fifth round of that year's motorcycle racing season. It took place on 9–11 August at the Dundrod Circuit. British rider Geoff Duke is amongst those making their way to the start. The team buses of several of the competitors and manufacturers are shown, including those of Walter Zeller and Moto Guzzi. Later, we see the riders in action, including the sidecars.
