Dunlop had taken part in two days of practice but would not race at this years event and would be heading home After taking sone time to himself, William will return to racing later in the year.
Speaking about his decision to withdraw, Dunlop said;
“This is a very difficult decision and not one I have taken lightly, I can only apologise to the team and all of our sponsors but I believe that continuing would be the wrong decision and would not give a true account of either myself or the team. I would like to thank Tim especially for how understanding and supportive he has been over the past few weeks, I obviously feel like I have let him and the team down but they have stood by me throughout. I am going to head home and take some time to recuperate before making a decision on when I will be back on the Temple Yamahas.”
