Michael Dunlop, “I have demonstrated that I can win at the TT with a Supersport and also have return records. But what I really want is to be the first driver that manages a 130 mph with a 600 and I think that it is possible. I have to cut in 11 seconds my best time, which is much. Yet my bike is going to improve this year, and when I made the record I made some small mistakes that I lost long time. I know that it is possible, just need to do a perfect lap in those 60 Km.”
It will be whatever no matter, however Dunlop knows that raise excitement before a race.
