The Honda TT Legends team has big plans for the 2013 season, and accordingly announced a dream team of riders to race for the factory squad in the World Endurance Championship, Isle of Man TT, and various other road races.
While the EWC team will consist of John McGuinness, Michael Rutter, and Simon Andrews, Michael Dunlop replaces Andrews on Honda TT Legends banner when it comes to road racing events — a huge boon to the young Irish racer, and already a popular move with TT fans.
Nephew to the famous Joey Dunlop, Michael brings some young blood to the Honda squad, and for the promising road racer (Michael already has three TT wins to his name), the support of a factory like Honda, with a factory team, bike, and engineers, is a huge step forward in his career.
We are sure fans will be happy to see the youngest of the two Dunlop boys on a factory ride this season, and from the looks of it, Honda is pretty happy to have Michael on-board as well.
