He was ahead of Cummins by 51 seconds,

Speaking after his victory he paid tribute to team-mate Dan Keen who died three days ago in a practice crash.

 "Just wanted to do that for Dan. Hopefully that's for the family."

"It's hard to celebrate this win, it's been a hard week."

"I struggled at the start and it took me time to settle. I had a bit of a problem with the rear end but I got my rhythm going and the Tyco BMW team have done a great job," Dunlop told the BBC.
