Man-on-a-mission Michael Dunlopís strategy for this yearís Isle of Man TT races is as straightforward as they come, with the Maverick stating matter-of-factly, ĎIím here to win every raceí.

The 11-time winner almost matched Bingley Bullet Ian Hutchinsonís five-in-a-week record in 2013, but was narrowly denied in a blistering Senior race by his then Honda Legends team-mate John McGuinness.

    Iím here to win any race Iím in. Iíve done fast laps on the 600, on the Superstock bike and on the Superbike, so I know what Iím capable of - Michael Dunlop

Dunlop, the only rider ever to secure back-to-back four timers at the TT in 2013 and 2014, endured a blip last year as he left the Isle of Man empty-handed.

His well documented split from the Milwaukee Yamaha team and a last-lap crash in the RST Superbike race put him on the back foot and Dunlop is out out to make amends this weekend.

The 27-year-old looked ominously strong on the Hawk Racing BMW at the North West 200 earlier this month, blasting Josh Brookesí outright lap record on the S1000RR on his way to his second Superbike victory around the Triangle course, where he also clinched the Superbike spoils on BMW machinery in 2014 Ė weeks before he won all three big bike races at the TT.

The 27-year-old has arrived on the Isle of Man in tip-top shape and is oozing confidence as practice week continues apace, with the clock ticking down to Saturdayís curtain-raising RST Superbike race (11am), which is scheduled over a full six-lap distance around the legendary 37.73-mile course.

Dunlop, who also rides a BMW in the RL360 Quantum Superstock race and a Yamaha R6 in both Monster Energy Supersport races, has a one-track mind when it comes to outlining his TT goals this week, when three more wins would put him level with Mike Hailwood in the hall of fame.

ďIím here to win any race Iím in Ė Iíve won the Formula 1 race or the Superbike race, whatever you want to call it, and Iíve won the Senior as well,Ē Dunlop told the News Letter.
