Two of the biggest names in TT history will merge together next year with Michael Dunlop riding for Norton.
The son of the late Robert Dunlop and nephew of the legendary Joey Dunlop will pilot the NRV588 Rotary Norton round the notorious 37¾ mile Mountain circuit.
Norton has been away from the TT for 16 years since Steve Hislop’s historic victory in the 1992 Senior TT.
And the return for 2009 will be part of Norton’s resurgence into the motorcycle world thanks to bike enthusiast and owner of Norton Racing, Stuart Garner.
MCN spoke exclusively to Michael Dunlop following a short test and photo shoot with the Norton earlier this week at Donington Park.
