William Dunlop signs for Tyco Suzuki

 

William Dunlop has signed for Tyco Suzuki.

It's the latest development in the T.T. rider merry-go-round with Josh Brookes confirmed at Milwaukee Yamaha and Ian Bell set to make a return to the sidecar class.

William Dunlop has been on the T.T. podium four times but has yet to register a victory.

Last year the 28-year-old joined the Superbike "130mph Club" and he goes into 2014 as team-mate to Guy Martin.

The pair will also compete at the North West 200, Ulster Grand Prix, Southern 100 and selected Irish National road races.

Former Tyco Suzuki rider Josh Brookes has been confirmed as team-mate to 8-time T.T. winner Ian Hutchinson at Milwaukee Yamaha having become the fastest T.T. newcomer this year with a lap of 127.726mph.

And yesterday, it was announced former T.T. sidecar winner Ian Bell will return to the Mountain Course for the first time since 2004.
