Dunlop secures trio of Ulster GP wins

The chance of winning all five of the races he entered fell away on the sighting lap of the main event when his Superbike engine let him down. He rushed back to the startline, jumped on his Superstock machine and completed the race in a creditable seventh place.

The final Superbike race of the day was also completed on the nearer road specification machine, with seventh place again being the best that could be achieved.

With these wins, another Dunlop is added to the roll call of winners at the Ulster Grand Prix, following the footsteps of his father Robert, an Ulster GP winner on nine occasions, and his Uncle Joey, who has a staggering 24 wins to his name.

Michael has been amazing this year. His bravery has never been in doubt, his racecraft has been coming on strong over the last few seasons, and now he has filled out and has the strength to take that superbike and wring its neck, he's become the most complete road racer in the world. (imho)
