Michael Dunlop is recovering from a broken pelvis and other fractures

Dunlop, 30, suffered a broken pelvis and other fractures when he crashed at the Isle of Man circuit earlier this month.

He was taken to Nobles Hospital on the island before later being discharged and he was expected to be out of action for longer than two weeks.

Paul Jordan is also returning to racing at the event after undergoing surgery on a broken thumb which he sustained in June.
