Michael Dunlop to compete in Le Mans 24-hour race

25-time TT winner signs for Superstock team TRT27

25-time TT winner Michael Dunlop is set to compete in a prestigious Le Mans 24 hour race next month.

The Ballymoney man will race in the Superstock category of the FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC) on Honda Fireblade machinery for French team TRT27.

He'll be joined by fellow British riders Ben Luxton, Tom Oliver and Tom Ward.

TRT27 team boss Eric Tanesie says they have 'the absolute honour of having a TT legend with us' with the rider himself having appeared in the EWC previously with the TT Legends team.

The 47th edition of the 24 Heures Motos will open the 2024 EWC season at Le Mans from 18-21 April.

Meanwhile, Dunlop is yet to announce his plans for this year's Isle of Man TT Races and North West 200.
