One of the most successful riders to have competed on the Isle of Man TT with 19 wins to his name. Dunlop has spent the last two seasons competing with TAS Racing BMW.
A winner in 2018 with the team, Dunlop parted ways with the team at the end of 2019. After the TAS team lost its official BMW Motorrad backing to rivals Smiths Racing, led by Peter Hickman. Since then there has been plenty of upheaval in the road racing rider market. With John McGuinness joining Quattro Plant Kawasaki. Glenn Irwin and Davey Todd heading up Honda Racing’s bid. And OMG Racing BMW penning a deal with David Johnson and James Hillier.
As for Dunlop, the Ulsterman has been linked with a return to Hawk Racing aboard. A factory-assisted Suzuki GSX-R1000 but he has since taken to social media to pour cold water on those rumours.
