Dunlop, a name inextricably linked with the Isle of Man TT Races, will be ‘Official Tyre Partner’ for the 2014 races in a new multi-year deal.
Dunlop has had massive success in the Isle of Man TT, having competed in all but two years of the championship since its beginnings in 1907. With legendary riders including John McGuinness and Joey Dunlop having shod their bikes with Dunlop tyres, the manufacturer has claimed more TT wins than any other tyre brand.
Dunlop’s Race to Road programme sees the leading tyre manufacturer take its learning from motorsport and cascading the technologies in to its road-going products. Recent examples include the Dunlop D212 GP Pro tyre which claimed five out of the six available podium places in 2013’s Supersport and Superstock races.
