19 times TT winner Michael Dunlop continued his recent run of impressive Supersport class form, at the latest Dunlop Masters Superbike Championship round at Mondello Park.
This afternoon’s opening feature Supersport encounter saw the three times Senior TT Champion, produce another performance that mixed sheer determination with fierce race pace.
Seventh post the conclusion of lap 1, by lap two YZF R6 Yamaha mounted Dunlop was up to fifth and by lap four took over second place.
Whilst race honours went to Kevin Keyes, Dunlop would ultimately finish only 0.787 behind, setting on the sixth and final lap the fastest lap of the race, lapping at 1 minute 42.571 seconds.
Absent from 1000cc competition this weekend, the Ballymoney racer’s next Supersport expedition around Mondello Park (International configuration) is scheduled to get underway tomorrow from 12:37 PM.
