A look back at 2017
Irish Road Racing
Irish Road Racing and the legendary Dunlops.
SWISS-MOTO is devoting a unique special show to the daring road races staged in the United Kingdom.
Road racing in the United Kingdom ranks amongst the most notorious motor sports events on two wheels. In addition to the famous mountain course for the Isle of Man TT, Ireland boasts numerous no less spectacular courses, which modern-day motor sports gladiators race up and down each year. One family of racing motorcyclists has stood out right from the start – the legendary Dunlops. Joey Dunlop, who suffered a fatal accident in 2000, is regarded as one of the most successful road racers of all times and was already a legend during his lifetime, being known as "King of the Roads". Amongst other achievements, he won the Isle of Man TT 26 times in the course of his career. Reason enough for SWISS-MOTO to devote a special show to this motor sports legend, featuring as yet unrivalled rarities. Joey Dunlop's son Gary and his nephew William will be coming to SWISS-MOTO in person and presenting a private collection of racing bikes, personal racing gear and rare cups won by the "King of the Roads". And that's not all: racing teams will be coming too, handing out autographs galore and projecting spectacular film scenes onto a big screen. And, in the TT simulator brought over especially from England, you can experience a round of the TT on Michael Dunlop's passenger seat.
