JOEY DUNLOP – THE TT WINS
This is the most comprehensive collection of action-packed race footage celebrating Joeys victories at the TT ever gathered together. After an exhaustive search of our own and many other producers archives as well as a worldwide appeal for footage we bring you exceptional highlights from a staggering 24 of Joeys record-breaking 26 TT wins.
While we have been unable to trace any race footage from his first win the 1977 Jubilee TT and the 1984 Formula One, the incredible film we have located charts a TT record which is unlikely ever to be bettered.
It shows Joey as a young charger, challenging and beating stars like Mick Grant and Roger Marshall, the big bike glory years when Joey scored six F1 wins in a row and his domination of the 125cc and 250cc classes in the 1990s. We are reminded of how Yer Maun overcame injury, horrendous weather, a missing exhaust and even a sunken boat to claim victory after victory, and stunned the racing world in 1995 when, as a 43-year-old, he won the Senior TT on the Honda RC45 his first big bike win for almost a decade.
Share the excitement as he sees off young challengers like Carl Fogarty, Steve Hislop, David Jefferies and John McGuinness, remaining as determined as ever to add to his record-breaking tally of wins. In 2000, at the age of 48, he defied all the odds to take three TT wins in a week for the third time the first man to achieve this incredible feat – and his seventh F1 victory after what many believe to be his greatest ever ride. Tragically this was to be his final TT, but it was a fitting end to Joeys amazing relationship with the awe-inspiring Mountain Course.
Joey Dunlop The TT Wins brings you action-packed highlights, including on-board footage, from these and many more history-making moments. Along the way we hear from Joey and his rivals, including brother Robert with whom he enjoyed some of his toughest battles in the Ultra-Lightweight TTs.
