Michael Dunlop will return to action for the first time since last month’s Isle of Man TT as the Steam Packet Southern 100 meeting gets underway on Monday evening with practice at Billown.

Dunlop, who has returned from Germany after participating in a trip to fulfil commitments for BMW, will ride a factory-prepared S1000RR Superbike as he bids to reclaim the Solo Championship title in the feature race on Thursday.

The 25-year-old was on course to equal his uncle Joey’s record of three successive wins in the blue riband race in 2013 until he was reeled in and passed by Tyco Suzuki’s Guy Martin.
