In a statement released by the Ballymoney Ace’s Facebook page, he stated “I’d like to clarify my current position regarding the upcoming road-racing season. I will be contesting the Superstock and Supersport classes at the Isle of Man TT and other events on my own MD Racing machines.”

“I have not renewed my contract with Hawk Racing, however, I am currently considering my options for the Superbike class and will confirm my plans when something is sorted. I’d like to thank Stuart and Steve for their support over recent years where we have shared a lot of success together,” added Dunlop.
