TT legends Dunlop and McGuinness to race at Revival

28th July 2016

Two of the biggest stars of the Isle of Man TT will make their debuts at the Goodwood Revival this year, as John McGuinness and Michael Dunlop are set to do battle in the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy.


Boasting 36 TT wins between them, McGuinness and Dunlop are legendary names at both the TT and around the road racing scene and will be plying their trade on a pair of Manx Nortons at the 2016 Goodwood Revival.

McGuinness made his TT debut back in 1996, – when Dunlop was just 7 years old – and competed alongside Michael’s legendary uncle Joey, who still holds the record for the most wins in TT history on 26. His first win came in the 1999 Lightweight TT, and he has ascended to the top step of the podium a further 22 times in his 20-year TT career.


Dunlop, meanwhile, made his debut on the Mountain Course in 2007, and now sits sixth in the all-time TT winners list with 13 victories. He dominated in 2013 and 2014, winning eight out of 11 races he contested and his battles against Ian Hutchinson in 2016 set the road racing scene alight.

Tickets for the Friday of Revival are still available, but selling fast and both riders will be in action on all three days, so make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity to see two of the biggest names in motorcycle racing today make their debut.
