Joey Dunlop memorial lap on Sunday

A lap of the TT course in memory of Joey Dunlop will go ahead whatever the weather this Sunday (July 1).

It's 12 years since 'Yer Maun' lost his life racing in Estonia.

Since his death, a lap of the course has been held annually as a tribute to the most successful TT rider and as a fundraiser for the Joey Dunlop Foundation.

Sunday's ride starts at the Grandstand at 11 am and organiser John Watterson says weather won't be a factor:

Riders will be gathering at the Grandstand from 9.30am and the Hailwood centre will be open for teas and coffees. A buffet will be held after the ride at the Mines Tavern in Laxey.
