‘I had a cou­ple of big mo­ments to­day’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Wil­liam Dun­lop posted the fastest 600cc prac­tice time and fin­ished fourth in the Su­pers­port race on the IC Rac­ing/caf­frey Yamaha R6, ten sec­onds down on Peter Hick­man and 26 in front of Ian Hutchin­son (Mcams Yamaha).

“I went out on the first lap and was try­ing hard but I had a cou­ple of big mo­ments and was nearly off at Gin­ger Hall and Hill­berry,” the 31- year-old ex­plained. “I was more cau­tious af­ter that.”

Dun­lop also strug­gled with the nar­row power band on his Mar­cus Eschen­bacher-built R6.

“It is a re­ally good bike but it needs dry con­di­tions to get the best out of it,” he said.

He made cer­tain of his fourth place with the sec­ond fastest lap of the race at 126.122mph on the fi­nal cir­cuit.
