Hawk Racing and Michael Dunlop join forces again for roads campaign

May 7, 2024

Hawk Racing is delighted to announce that road racing star Michael Dunlop will ride for the team in the superbike categories at the Isle of Man TT and North West 200.

The Northern Irishman will again be on board the MasterMac Honda by Hawk Racing Honda Fireblade for the prestigious Senior TT and Superbike TT when the eyes of the motor racing world descend on the Isle of Man in June.

Dunlop and Hawk combined to win the Superbike TT last year and the 35-year-old is now just one win away from equalling the all-time record of 26 TT titles held by his legendary uncle Joey.

Dunlop will also compete on the MasterMac Honda by Hawk Racing at the North West 200 in Northern Ireland, in a total of three superbike races taking place on Thursday 9th and Saturday 11th May.

Hawk Racing is delighted to be working alongside a number of partners both old and new for the 2024 road racing campaign. A further update will be made in due course.

Hawk Racing’s team manager Steve Hicken said: “We’re delighted to be continuing our long-standing relationship with Michael. He’s a truly exceptional talent and we share his appetite for success.

“Road racing is an important part of the team’s heritage and both the TT and North West 200 are big priorities for us alongside our Bennetts British Superbikes campaign.

“The competition this year will be as strong as ever but we’ll be doing everything we can to compete for wins.”

The North West 200 takes place from 8-11 May on a circuit connecting the towns of Portstewart, Coleraine and Portrush.

Qualifying for the Isle of Man TT takes place in the last week of May, with races around the epic 37-mile course running from 1-8 June.
