William Dunlop confident of Supersport TT success

“I'll have plenty of time on the bikes before the first race and that's a big help,” added Dunlop, who will also ride the ex-Ian Hutchinson Yamaha YZF-R1 in the superbike class on the roads.

“The bikes are Hutchy's bikes and the Superbike is a World Superbike-spec R1 that was raced by [Eugene] Laverty and [Marco] Melandri a couple of years back.

“I've no doubt we'll get the big bike working right for the TT and Hutchy did a lap at 127.8mph on the bike at the TT this year, which was pretty good considering how bad an injury he had.”

Hutchinson has been sidelined in 2013 as he continues to battle the leg injury he initially suffered during a crash at the end of the 2010 season.
