Reading the book Road Racer: Its in my blood by Michael Dunlop. Reading about his family and racing. Just now I logged into Facebook and see his brother William has passed. So sad to hear.
I have my own copy of 'Road', great DVD but sad in places too.I saw the news about William Dunlop RIP. Road racing has taken a heavy toll on that family.
There was also a documentary called 'Road' from memory which went over the Dunlop family and road racing. I think it was narrated by Liam Neeson. It's certainly interesting to watch if you can track it down.
I used to get a yearly CD covering the Irish Road Racing series, but only for a few seasons as a lot of the guys I followed died. Always exciting racing but rather unforgiving.
We mentioned that about them not actually dying at the TT in a different forum, you also caught that lol!I have my own copy of 'Road', great DVD but sad in places too.
Unforgiving is a good word to describe that circuit.
One interesting thing is that although William, Robert and Joey Dunlop all raced in the I.O.M TT they all died racing at lesser events.
No it was an original thought that came to me at work last week. I remember Joey being killed at Estonia but I wasn't 100% sure where Robert was killed so had to google that one.We mentioned that about them not actually dying at the TT in a different forum, you also caught that lol!
