It was a case of history repeating itself for Dunlop on the Isle of Man this morning as supported riders Ian Hutchinson, John McGuinness and Guy Martin clinched another all-Dunlop podium at the Centenary TT road races. The three Honda campaigners scored a 1-2-3 result in today's PokerStars Supersport TT race in front of thousands of sun-drenched spectators.
The winners' podium is familiar territory to Hutchinson, McGuinness and Martin, as all three shared the rostrum in Monday's Bennetts Superbike race, with McGuinness clinching the eventual victory from Martin and Hutchinson. Morecambe-based McGuinness and his HM Plant Honda Racing team-mate Hutchinson then went on to score second and third place finishes in yesterday's PokerStars Superstock event.
Hutchinson maintained station in fourth place throughout the opening stages of today's Supersport race before pulling out a 0.39s lead by Glen Helen on lap two. The HM Plant Honda Racing rider continued to increase his advantage on the chasing pack - recording 169.9mph aboard his Dunlop-shod Honda CBR600RR through Sulby on the third lap.
Hutchinson took the eventual victory from McGuinness - who was fielding the Padgetts Honda CBR600RR - by 2.84s. The Bingley-based rider set a new race record by 34 seconds. Third-placed Martin also set a new lap record at 125.147mph.
Dunlop's domination of this year's Isle of Man TT has so far earned it eight out of nine two-wheel podiums. The British tyre manufacturer's success in public roads racing proves the capabilities of its Triple Tread Compound technology, which is now available to road riders in the new GP Racer and Qualifier RR tyres.
