Irish roads legend Michael Dunlop has spun his first laps on the Paul Bird Ducati Panigale he will ride at this year’s Isle of Man TT and North West 200.

Team boss Bird confirmed to last night he would run Dunlop on the Superbike at both events.

Dunlop flew down to Jerez over the weekend and is taking part in the official Bennetts British Superbike test but has only put in a handful of times so far.
