All Star Carl Cox Motorsport/MD Racing Partnership Remains For 2018 Roads Season

Two of pure road racing’s most popular and famous teams, have for a second successive year, formed a partnership, which sees Carl Cox Motorsport provide again strong backing for Michael Dunlop’s multi TT winning, MD Racing outfit.

Recently beginning his latest roads campaign in victorious style at Cookstown, winning the Supersport Invitational race, Mountain Course lap record holder Dunlop, underlined the potential of his still developing newly acquired PTR prepared CBR 600RR Honda.

Fourth in the feature Supersport race, the sole 1000cc competition of this years KDM Hire Cookstown 100, saw him begin his Tyco BMW roads career in solid style, battling his way to second, as Derek Sheils made it five big bike successes in a row at Cookstown.

Alongside the striking Carl Cox Motorsport branding on the MD Racing CBR 600RR Honda/Superstock S1000RR BMW, the works Tyco BMW Superbike machine, also features for this season, the CCM logo.

Speaking about joining forces again, with leading DJ, huge pure road racing fan, and all round good guy Carl Cox, 16 times TT winner Dunlop, stated:

“It’s fantastic to have Carl back on board for 2018, he’s a mega ambassador for us, and the team couldn’t do what they do without his support.

I’m obviously pleased to get that first win on the MD Racing Supersport 600, and I think the bike is looking spot on in its new colours!”

Carl Cox added:

“It’s fantastic to be back supporting Michael as he looks to add to his incredible tally of 15 TT wins.

I first met him properly last year about five minutes before he set off down Bray Hill, and then a few hours later we were standing in the winner’s enclosure having taken our first TT victory! I can’t wait to be back on the island this year, where hopefully we’ll secure a few more trophies.”
