Dunlop On Provisional Pole At NW200

Dunlop also finished fourth in the Superbike class, just one place behind team-mate Guy Martin, who posted the sixth-fastest time in the middleweight division. Dunlop and Martin were seventh and 10th respectively in the Superstock session, which was red-flagged.

William Dunlop:

“I’m pretty pleased with that for an opening day at the North West. I had every confidence we could be up there on the GSX-R600 Supersport bike but was also looking for a top ride on the Superbike. I will take fourth place happily. We had no major problems and with more time on the Superstock bike in a full session we can get well-up the grid.”

Guy Martin:

“Can’t complain too much about that. Top-three on the Superbike and well within striking distance on the 600 shows we are already competitive. The weather was mint and the circuit is in pretty-good nick apart from turn two; but it’s the same for everyone. The Superstock session was cut short but yeah, a decent first day.”

Philip Neill – Team Manager:

“The first day here can be a bit fraught but we’ve done well considering and haven’t struggled, showing the pedigree of all our GSX-R machinery. All the bikes are well qualified; we just need some fine-tuning and to keep our mind on the job now for Thursday morning. Then we go racing, but we’re ready for it.”
