Hat-trick hero Dunlop takes three wins for Bennetts Suzuki at Southern 100 road races

Michael Dunlop took three wins from four starts for the Bennetts Suzuki team at this week's Southern 100 road races on the Isle of Man, setting a new circuit lap record of 115.707mph along the way onboard the new GSX-R1000 Bitubo suspension equipped.

Dunlop got off to winning start, taking victory in the event's opening race. After making a good start to lead the opening lap, Dunlop dropped back to second on lap two. From there, he sat behind race-leader Dan Kneen, before making another pass for the lead on the penultimate lap. He held the advantage until the chequered flag to take the win, the first for the new GSX-R1000 around the Billown circuit.

The 2017 Senior TT winner then backed it up with victory in Wednesday's seven-lap race, and then took the win in the first of two races on Thursday.

The final, nine-lap Manx Gas Solo Championship race saw Dunlop, Kneen and Dean Harrison fight for position, and all enjoyed spells at the front of the race, and while he had to eventually settle for third, Dunlop set a new course record of 115.707mph on the last lap.
