Michael Dunlop to be MCE BSB wildcard

MCE Insurance

Eleven-time TT winner Michael Dunlop will team up with Hawk Racing again in 2016, racing for Buildbase BMW. He will also make a few wildcard appearances in the MCE Insurance British Superbike championship in the process, racing on the BMW S1000RR to reacquaint himself with the bike before the road racing season commences.

Dunlop and the team achieved three TT victories in 2014 and will hope to improve on that in 2016. The 26 year old rider sensationally switched from Milwaukee Yamaha back to Buildbase BMW in 2015 halfway through the TT stating he didn't feel competitive on the bike, and so it is no surprise he will return to his former team.

Team Manager Steve Hicken commented: "We're delighted to have Michael back on board for 2016. We know what we have to do to get him back on the top step and with a proper lead time to prepare this year we're looking forward to helping him achieve his ambitions."
