This machine won the 1928 Ulster Grand Prix at 80.078mph/128.873kph and raised the lap record for the Clady Circuit to 82.09mph/132.11kph. It was ridden by Graham Walker, subsequently to become a well-known voice of motor sport commentary. His son, Murray, would later follow in his father's footsteps on the Formula One scene.

The Rudge typifies technical features which were then advanced and brought the company considerable fame: four-valve cylinder head, four-speed gearbox and brakes.

The Ulster Grand Prix win gave the name Ulster to the Rudge production sports models that followed. They were invariably fast and, in special form, were highly successful racers.
