For motorcycle fans, Joey Dunlop is still akin to royalty. At the 50th anniversary of Honda’s arrival at the TT, images of the modest Ulsterman still held pride of place throughout the Isle of Man. In this inspirational book, written in association with the Dunlop family and Honda UK and reissued to mark the tenth anniversary of Joey’s death, Mac McDiarmid charts the life of the passionate road racer who competed for the love of the sport, whether at high-profile races or to promote humbler events such as the Estonian one that claimed his life in July 2000.
