William Dunlop has re-signed for the Wilson Craig Honda team for the 2012 road racing season.
The pair agreed terms for next year's international and national road racing campaigns earlier this week.
Dunlop has made steady progress this year on board Craig's Superbike, Superstock and Supersport machines.
"This is the first time that I have ever had things tied up so soon and I can't wait for next season," said the 26-year-old Ballymoney rider.
"Wilson's bikes are first class and I have no doubt I'll take another step up again next year.
"I am aiming to win on the 600 at the TT in 2012 and to try and make the podium in the Superbikes classes because I am so comfortable on the big bike.
"I lapped the TT circuit this year at 128mph from a standing start, and there is no other team in the paddock that I would rather be with next year than Wilson Craig Racing," added Dunlop.
