Description

A biography of the late Irish motorcycle racing legend, Joey Dunlop, who won a record 26 Isle of Man TT races over the famous road circuit, as well as a host of other titles, during a 30-year career. Born and raised in Ballymoney, Co. Antrim, Dunlop started racing in 1969 on a 199cc Tiger Cub for which he paid #50. It was the beginning of a passion that would rule his life. He was never more at home than competing in the famous Isle of Man Tourist Trophy races. In all he took the chequered flag in 26 TT races, until his tragic death on the second of July 2000 while racing in Estonia. In 1986 Joey Dunlop was awarded an MBE for services to motorcycling. That was followed ten years later by an OBE in recognition of his efforts transporting food and medical supplies to Romanian orphanages. The author has blended archive material and freshly conducted interviews with Joey's friends, family and racing peers such as Steve Hislop, Carl Fogarty and Roger Marshall to produce this book.
