Welcome to the
official Joey Dunlop website ...
William Joseph "Joey"
Dunlop, O.B.E., M.B.E. (February 25th 1952 - July 2nd 2000),
was a world champion motorcycle racer from Ballymoney in
Northern Ireland, best known for road racing. Best known
throughout the sport as "Joey" or "Yer Maun",
his achievements include three hat-tricks at the Isle of
Man TT races (1985, 1988 and 2000), where he won a record
of 26 races in total. During Joey's career he won the Ulster
Grand Prix 24 times and the North West 200 13 times. In
1986 Joey won a fifth consecutive TT Formula One world title.
In 2005 he was voted the fifth greatest motorcycling icon
ever by Motorcycle News.
never wanted to be a superstar, I just wanted to be myself,
I hope people remember me that way"
Joey was awarded the M.B.E. in 1986 for his
services to the sport, and in 1996 he was awarded the O.B.E.
for his humanitarian work for children in Romanian orphanages.
Joey Dunlop would often load up his race transporter and
deliver clothing and food to the trouble spots of Bosnia
and Romania. His humanitarian work was done without drawing
attention to himself.
2015, Joey was voted Northern
Ireland's Greatest Ever Sports Star.
thanks to all of Joeys sponsors, without your help and support,
he would not have achieved his goal in life, also to all
of his mechanics who were with him every step in his success.
To the photographers and writers, thank you.
Jeremy Gill, for designing the website, your support and
continued hard work in bringing this website to the success
it is, you have done a fantastic job and we look forward
to working along side you in the future.
last but not least to you Joeys fans, he once said "if
you don't have the fans you don't have a career", well
he certainly had a career and that was all down to you for
your generosity, kindness and support that you gave to him.
