Joey Dunlop Foundation
- Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling
A message from
Kevin Quirk of the Joey Dunlop Foundation ....
With Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling
now fast approaching , the team at JDF expect to be
extremely busy with the Festival theme being 'Joey Dunlop
and his rivals'.
We decided that the traditional memorial
lap should be switched from its traditional date of
2nd July to Tuesday 26th August.
In line with previous years the lap
is on open roads and this year the police have agreed
to assist with traffic flow.
We are expecting a significant number
of motorcycles participating and ask that you arrive
in Pitlane or Parc Ferme no later than 18.00 with a
prompt start at 18.30.
As JDF is currently proposing to build
two more apartments at Braddan Bridge, we ask each participant
to purchase a Joey Dunlop Foundation T shirt, Simon
Andrews Memorial Lap T shirt or a Joey Dunlop Foundation
To avoid the rush prior to departure
why not buy online at www.joeydunlopfoundation.com
, call down to Braddan Bridge House (week day mornings
, apart from 12-14 August) or visit our retail outlets
in the TT Grandstand.
The name Joey
now trademarked by the family. There’s a lot of
items on the internet that do not have the approval
of the family, and hence are not official merchandise,
so think twice before purchasing these items, as they
are NOT licensed products.
You can pre-order the No
ordinary Joe DVD from Duke Video prior to its release
date of 12th December by visiting HERE
