Joey Dunlop Foundation - Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling

A message from Kevin Quirk of the Joey Dunlop Foundation ....

With Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling now fast approaching , the team at JDF expect to be extremely busy with the Festival theme being 'Joey Dunlop and his rivals'.

We decided that the traditional memorial lap should be switched from its traditional date of 2nd July to Tuesday 26th August.

In line with previous years the lap is on open roads and this year the police have agreed to assist with traffic flow.

We are expecting a significant number of motorcycles participating and ask that you arrive in Pitlane or Parc Ferme no later than 18.00 with a prompt start at 18.30.

As JDF is currently proposing to build two more apartments at Braddan Bridge, we ask each participant to purchase a Joey Dunlop Foundation T shirt, Simon Andrews Memorial Lap T shirt or a Joey Dunlop Foundation Polo shirt.

To avoid the rush prior to departure why not buy online at , call down to Braddan Bridge House (week day mornings , apart from 12-14 August) or visit our retail outlets in the TT Grandstand.

As we endeavour to raise funds for the much needed apartments, why not treat the event as a sponsored ride and set up a link to www.just

We look forward to seeing you on the 26th August.

Joey Dunlop - No Ordinary Joe DVD

This DVD has been produced by the same team that made ‘Joey Dunlop – Remembered’ and ‘How the North West was Won’ for the BBC and includes all the good material we could not fit in our BBC production ‘Joey Dunlop – Remembered’.
As well as lots of new stories and tributes from contributors including:

  • Linda Dunlop and family members
  • John McGuinness
  • Steve Parrish
  • Richard Nichols
  • Phillip McCallen
  • Eddie Laycock
  • Hector Neill
  • Barry Symmons
  • Brian Reid 

The Dunlop Family have raided the family archive to find new pictures never shown before even on the Joey website.

In addition we have looked in our film archive for more racing footage of Joey including the NW200 ,Ulster Grand Prix and races in Ireland.

There are interviews with Joey never shown before and also a visit to the Kushitani factory in Japan where his leather patterns are still kept.

Among the new material is exclusive footage from the Joey Thanksgiving Service held in the Garryduff Presbyterian Church.

Also from the personal photographs of Derek McIntyre (former Motorcycle News Photographer) are exclusive pictures of Joey on the continent. This sequence was not included in the Joey Dunlop TV programme.

Presented and Narrated by Stephen Watson and endorsed by the Dunlop Family as the only official DVD of Joey’s life.

The programme runs for nearly an hour and a half.
