Robert Dunlop Racing
Robert won the Macau Grand Prix in 1989 on a Honda RC30, beating Phillip McCallen and Steve Hislop, both on Honda 750's .
In 1990 he joined the JPS Norton racing team on the Norton 588 Rotary, and on short circuits notched one of the three three MCN Supercup wins, the other two by Terry Rymer. Dunlop notched a double in Ireland's North West 200 and finished third in the F1 Isle of Man TT . In 1994, Robert suffered a major accident on the Isle of Man Formula One TT, when the back wheel of his 750cc Honda RC45 collapsed just after he took the jump over Ballaugh Bridge. Robert suffered multiple injuries and was extremely lucky to have survived the high-speed crash. A long stay in hospital, followed by protractive recuperation, meant Robert was out of action for the remainder of 1994 and all of 1995.
