Joey Dunlop Memorial Lap next Tuesday

Joey Dunlop Memorial Lap next Tuesday

The Joey Dunlop Memorial lap of the TT Course, which is an official part of the Isle of Man Classic TT Festival of Motorcycling, will leave the grandstand under police escort at 7 pm on Tuesday 26th August.

Organised by the Joey Dunlop Foundation here in the Isle of Man, participants are asked to arrive from 4pm and to park up in the direction of the course in the pit lane and then parc ferme. They can then collect their participator’s T-shirt and sticker from the JDF organisers.

The memorial lap will be police lead and escorted around the TT course on open two-way public roads, and riders are asked not to overtake the lead police vehicles or tribute lead-out machines, and of course to obey all instructions or directions given by police officers.

During the lap many road junctions will be police controlled to allow the memorial – which is expected to number in excess of 1500 machines - to proceed and to minimise any disruption to other motorists.

The Joey Dunlop Foundation wants to thank everyone for taking part and especially those who will be cheering from their gardens and roadside vantage points – particularly everyone who has helped in the fundraising to develop the Braddan Bridge House holiday facilities for the disabled, which are now considered to be the best in the Isle of Man.
