‘I had a sleep in the back of the van to­day’ MICHAEL DUN­LOP

Dun­lop’s Su­per­sport race vic­tory at Armoy fol­lowed an all-night shift to re­place the en­gine on his R6 MD Rac­ing Yamaha after he blew a mo­tor dur­ing Fri­day evening’s first 600cc race.

“We worked hard to get the en­gine in overnight and I had a sleep in the back of the van to­day” he said.

Dun­lop won the race by 3.3 sec­onds from Derek Mcgee (B&W Kawasaki) and James Cow­ton’s sim­i­lar Mcadoo ZX-6R.

Dun­lop’s form in the Su­per­sport class had been patchy over the past cou­ple of sea­sons be­fore his Su­per­sport TT win in June.

“I can still ride a 600 and, on a level play­ing field, I can win.” he said. “At the Isle of Man TT, where the rules were stuck to this year and the new Yamaha had no more power, I came back on top.”
