Michael Dunlop is to be reunited with the Hawk Racing Honda CBR1000RR-R he took to Superbike TT victory during the 2023 Isle of Man TT after being called up for this weekend’s Oulton Park British Superbike Championship round.

The Northern Irishman collaborated with Hawk Racing to ride its Fireblade in the Superbike and Superstock classes at the TT, Dunlop achieving a new outright Mountain Course record during qualifying practice - later bettered by Peter Hickman - before racing it to one of his four wins during race week.

For this weekend, however, Dunlop reverts back to short course racing with Hawk Racing, where he will deputise for the injured Josh Owens and partner Charlie Nesbitt.


“We have a great relationship with Michael and, with Josh still unavailable, it was only natural for us to invite him back for a ride,” said team manager Stuart Hicken. 

“He’s recognised as one of the biggest names in road racing, but Michael has also played a valuable part in our Bennetts BSB season, riding in the early rounds in preparation for the roads campaign and helping to improve the bike every time he’s been with us.

“We’re looking forward to his return and I’m sure he’ll be a draw for the fans too. It’s unfortunate for Josh to be missing out, particularly given this is his home race, but he’s on the road to recovery and we hope to see him back on the bike soon.”
