Dunlop had finished second behind Ian Hutchinson. As a result of the disqualification, Dean Harrison now moves up to second place with James Hillier in third.

A statement issued by the organisers said: “ACU Events Ltd can confirm that two competitors have been disqualified from today's Supersport Race 1 at the Isle of Man TT Races.

“Michael Dunlop has been excluded from the results for a technical infringement identified during post race examination.

“ACU Events Ltd do not believe that there was a deliberate attempt to gain an unfair advantage and no significant performance advantage was gained.

“As a result of this disqualification, Dean Harrison moves up to second place with James Hillier now taking the final podium position.

“In addition Rob Hodson, who finished 14th in the same race, has also been disqualified from the race having been found to have been running a significantly oversized engine.”

Not a performance boosting infringement. Just an engine bought from last years regulations, that featured something that isn't on this years regulations. A simple overlook by his team which they are very embarrassed about. If Mickey D had won, he'd be livid, I don't think he'll care at all about losing his second place.
