A special display will celebrate the Dunlop motorcycling dynasty (from Joey to Michael, Robert to William) as this year marks the 40th anniversary of Joey’s first Isle of Mann TT victory. With a grand total of 41 TT wins and 37 North West 200s between the quartet, the Dunlops can lay claim to be THE first family of road racing.
Highlights from the display will include Joey’s final TT-winning bike, while alongside it Honda will bring the iconic Vimto SP1 from their collection in Japan specifically to appear at FOS. Alongside these, the National Motorcycle Museum will have a fantastic display of Rotary JPS Nortons, including the bike that Robert took to a trio of wins at the North West 200.
Michael and William will bring the story full circle – with Michael bringing his Superstock Suzuki GSX1000R and William both his Superbike Yamaha R1-M and Supersport Yamaha R6 – all fresh from this year’s TT Races.
Also lighting up the Hillclimb direct from the Manx roads be Bruce Anstey aboard the Padgett’s Honda Superbike, James Hillier on his JG Speedfit Kawasaki ZX-10R, Gary Johnson aboard a Triumph Daytona 675 and Dan Kneen, who will be riding a selection of Joey Dunlop machinery in the Dunlop Dynasty Class.
