Michael Dunlop eased his TT wins tally into double figures on Wednesday afternoon when he won the second Monster Energy Supersport race.

The 25-year-old pretty much lead from start to finish on his MD Racing Honda, coming home 10.089 seconds from Bruce Anstey.

William Dunlop ensured it would be a memorable day for the Ballymoney motorcycling dynasty finishing a further 13.795 seconds down to claim his first podium of the week.

Dean Harrison came home fourth, with James Hillier and Keith Amor completing the top six on his comeback year.

After the race Dunlop said: ‘The bike never missed a beat. It was a great race - fantastic. I’m just loving racing at the moment.’

A philosophical Anstey added: ‘I went flat out, but he [Dunlop] reeled me in and that was it.’

Tyco Suzuki man William Dunlop added: ‘It’s been a hard week but we’re slowly getting there.’

Conor Cummins and Ian Hutchinson both retired on the first lap, while Lee Johnston and Josh Brookes were involved in an incident at the Creg on the last lap that saw both forced to retire. Both riders were okay.

A fire in the pit lane involving Grant Wagstaff’s bike saw several riders pit stops disrupted. They were given time credits, but it has meant a delay to the publishing of the official results.
