William Dunlop (born 23 July 1985) is a Northern Irish motorcycle racer, brother of Isle of Man TT winner Michael, the son of the late Robert, and the nephew of legendary TT racer Joey Dunlop. William started racing 125 cc bikes at the age of 17.

Dunlop has competed in four TT's with a third in the SuperSports TT in 2013 being his best result, with his brother Michael being first on the podium.[1] He has won two races at the North West 200 with his first victory being the 250 cc race in 2009. 2009 also saw Dunlop take part in the last ever 250cc Grand Prix race at Valencia finishing 18th on a P J Flynn Bigman Racing Honda.[2]

William crashed his Tyco Suzuki Superbike in the final race of the week at the 2014 Isle of Man TT, during the Senior TT marquee event. William led the race on time briefly during the first lap, but ran wide through the Graham Memorial corner on the mountain section on the third lap of the race, running up against the embankment alongside the roadway, resulting in two fractures to his left leg.[3] [4]
