Michael Dunlop laps Island at 109mph on NMM bike

Michael was representing Robert Dunlop in the Joey Dunlop 'the rivals' tribute parade lap held on Saturday August 23.

Not so much 'a parade' when Michael announced to Museum Director James Hewing that he was "going for it" and posted the incredible lap time on a bike he had never even sat on before getting on  the grid!

Event Organisers had even arranged for replica JPS leathers and helmet for Michael to accurately replicate those worn by father Robert in the early 1990s.

The Brian Crighton and Museum team prepared bike ran perfectly and The National Motorcycle Museum was very proud to be able to help Michael represent his Dad in this way on the iconic Mountain circuit.
