The Joey Dunlop Tribute Show

One of the main attractions of this year’s show has to be the exclusive personal Joey Dunlop Tribute which is the first time it will be on display in southern Ireland.

Joey was, and still is, a household name in the world of motorcycling. Joey was also an accessible hero to his fellow racers as much as he was to his many race fans. With a simply staggering amount of wins, as well as an easy attitude that allowed the road racing fan an unusual amount of access to the paddock. This continues to be the case at many meetings today.

Top motorcycle sports photographer, Stephen Davison will be talking to those who raced with the Northern Irish road racing legend during his astonishing 31 year career. Luminaries such as John McGuinness, Mick Grant and Eddie Laycock are scheduled to speak over the course of the three day show on the Lifestyle Stage. Several of his iconic race bikes will also be on display.

These will include his Honda RC30, as well as his Honda RC45 and his 600 and 250cc race bikes. There will also be a display of his iconic helmets, leathers and even the tool kit, which he would never attend a meeting without. His MBE and OBE as well as the ceremonial sword he was awarded will also be available to view.

This is one feature that road racing fans won’t want to miss!
