William Dunlop To Join Tyco Suzuki
Tyco Suzuki has confirmed the signing of talented road racer William Dunlop for the 2014 season.
The 28-year-old will ride alongside Guy Martin in next season’s Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy as well as the other international road races — The North West 200 and The Ulster Grand Prix.
Dunlop will also take in a selection of national road races during 2014 and will partner Guy Martin at the Southern 100 in July aboard a full stable of GSX-R machinery decked out in Tyco Suzuki livery.
Dunlop’s 2013 TT campaign included joining the Superbike 130mph Club at this year’s and victory in the second Supersport race at the Ulster Grand Prix. He made his TT debut in 2006 and has two Monster Energy Supersport TT Race podiums, with third place finishes in 2012 and 2013.
He is delighted at the prospect of joining his local Northern Ireland based team for 2014.
“Now that I have it all signed off I’m pretty excited to be honest,” Dunlop said. “I know how fast the Tyco Suzuki GSX-R600 is having followed Guy Martin this year at the Southern 100 and his results on the Superbike at the Ulster Grand Prix speak for themselves. I never expected to be riding for Hector and Philip this year but it just shows you what can happen in racing, and now that I am I can’t wait to get started.”
