Dun­drod has not been a happy hunt­ing ground for Michael Dun­lop in re­cent years with his name fail­ing to ap­pear on the win­ner’s list since 2013.

His record-break­ing vic­to­ries in the Su­per­bike and Se­nior TTS, as well as his suc­cess at the North West 200, South­ern 100 and Ar­moy, cre­ated an air of ex­pec­ta­tion around the Bal­ly­money man.

But his roads rac­ing dom­i­na­tion came to an abrupt end. De­spite be­ing in the mix in both Su­per­bike races and in the stocker event on his own MD Rac­ing BMW he couldn’t quite match the pace of Hutchin­son or An­stey.

“It was a great race but they just had bet­ter pace,” the bit­terly dis­ap­pointed 27-year-old said af­ter fail­ing to pro­vide his huge le­gion of lo­cal fans who lined the Dun­drod hedges with the win they craved.

Close but no cigar for Michael Dun­lop
