PTR Announce Supersport Roads Link Up With Michael Dunlop

World Supersport championship mainstays PTR (Performance Technical Racing) are set to move back into the international roads scene this year, having recently announced that they have built a brand new CBR 600RR Honda for Michael Dunlop’s MD Racing team.

It was back in 2013, when Simon Buckmaster’s team last tackled the premier roads events, enjoying sustained success with Mountain Course maestro Dunlop.

27 times international road race winner Dunlop, lap speed of 128.666 mph aboard the PTR prepared Hunts Motorcycles backed Honda, set on the fourth and final lap of the second Monster Energy Supersport race of TT 2013, remains to date the existing Supersport TT lap record.

Additionally in 2013, securing Supersport success at the North West 200, plus rostrums at Cookstown, Skerries, Armoy and the Southern 100, the first incarnation of the PTR/Dunlop partnership was most definitely a five star combination.

Working this year with Niki Tuuli and Andrew Irwin in the 2018 World Supersport championship, PTR expressed today via Twitter their delight at working again with Ballymoney’s Dunlop.

They stated:

“Finished Michael Dunlop’s CBR600RR for the roads. Really pleased to be working with Micky D & Hunts Motorcycles again.”
