Ulster GP: Michael Dunlop looks to continue domination at Dundrod

1 of 1

Michael Dunlop is looking to continue his domination of the 2016 road racing season at this week’s Ulster Grand Prix.

The Ballymoney man is unbeaten in the Superbike class this year, with victories at the North West 200, Isle of Man TT and Southern 100 to date with further big bike victories in a number of Irish nationals.


However, having not won at Dundrod since 2013 his would could be cut out this weekend with the event known for its close-natured racing and unpredictable weather conditions.

“I’ve had a good year already with wins in the big bike races at the internationals so I’m happy enough,” he said.

“If you look at my times at the TT I could have done a 134mph, but Dundrod is the place where we really need to step it up now. For sure the wind and the tyres will be big things, but we’re supposed to be in for a good turn in the weather and the track is looking really good so we should be alright.” 

“The big bike is good. We’ve had a couple of problems with the other two but we should have them sorted easily enough.

“We just need to work with what we’ve got here and try to make a good package for Saturday. I want to be right for Saturday’s race, that’s the big one.”
