Dunlop returns to SuperTwin camp with McAdoo Racing
Thursday, 9 March 2017
THE last remaining pieces of the jigsaw for the 2017 road racing season have been put in place by Ballymoney's Michael Dunlop.
Just days after it was announced he would ride Suzuki's new GSX-R1000 Superbike at the 'big three' international meetings the twenty-seven-year-old confirmed he will be teaming up with McAdoo Racing to compete in the Super Twin Class. Dunlop, it seems, is going all out this year to secure rides on the best possible machines as the tie-up will see him use Kawasaki's new Z650 Ninja.
“We are thrilled to have Michael race in McAdoo colours again, a man we believe is the number one road racer in the world and to have Nick Morgan from MSS oversee the project is a perfect combination," said a spokesman for McAdoo Kawasaki. "Michael's record of success is sensational and the outright lap record at the TT in 2016 was a mark of his outstanding ability. To have him back on board alongside the exciting potential of James Cowton is mouthwatering for the team." Dunlop is no stranger to the lightweight class and has enjoyed success on Super Twin machinery, his last coming at the Cookstown 100 two seasons ago.
