Isle of Man TT 2014: RL360 Superstock TT Results

Tue, 03 Jun 2014

Michael Dunlop won his second race in the 2014 Isle of Man TT and ninth in his career, taking the RL360 Superstock TT on a BMW S1000RR. Dunlop also won the Superbike TT earlier, giving BMW its first two wins on the Isle of Man since 1939.

Meanwhile, Supersport TT 1 winner Gary Johnson was injured in a crash on the opening lap while running second behind Dunlop. Johnson was airlifted to hospital where he was reportedly treated for fractures including a broken collarbone.

The crash gave Dunlop some breathing room, completing the first lap with a 6.7-second lead over Kawasaki rider with Bruce Anstey on his Honda another four seconds behind in third.

Dunlop increased his lead on the second lap to 13.3 seconds over Harrison, thanks to a race-best lap time of 17:26.621 before the lead riders headed to the pits to fuel up for the final two laps. Returning to the track, Harrison gained some time, cutting Dunlop’s lead to about nine seconds through Glen Helen. Dunlop found another gear as well and by the end of Lap 3 his lead grew to more than 18 seconds.

Not resting on his lead, Dunlop again led all riders with the fastest time on the final lap for the win.
