Armoy road races

Great days racing today at the Armoy (Joey Dunlop's home town) road races.
As I expected 7 time TT winner Michael Dunlop and his Brother William dominated against a strong field of Guy Martin..,Conor Cummins etc.

Oh and 250 Grand Prix veteran Jeremy McWilliams was racing also.

Great preparation ahead of the Ulster Grand Prix in a couple of weeks!
Brian

Yeah Brian, what an absolute fantastic day!;
Glorious weather, great racing, a fantastic atmosphere, and thankfully no red flags.

The whole meeting went like clockwork- many congratulations to the Armoy club
and all those involved!

The older I get, the faster I was!

Hows this for commitment?

Have a look at where Michael Dunlop's knee is in relation the the footpath kerb while right up the back end of Guy Martin.
My mate Davey took the Photo.

Yep Jochen...,that's one of them they're on almost every weekend!
Here's some footage of a lap of this one (The Armoy road race) from a DVD of the 2012 meeting.

And yes the Dunlops are legends!....here is a fantastic documentary on Irish road racing from a few years ago featuring true legends...including personal heros of mine the sadly departed legends.... 'Martin Finnegan'..and Michael and William's father and Joey's brother 'Robert Dunlop'

Enjoy this...it is a superb documentary...!!!!!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_v-Zu0Xr2c

Thank you Brian!!

The vid of the Dunlop family reminded me on the times back in the 80s when we shared the very rare video cassettes of the isle of man TT.

They went hand to hand in school .

Then we tried to copy the riding style on our 80 cc mopeds (I had a Zündapp with a 100 cc set up and ported cylinder channels, all DIY - made 125 km/h).

I think we did not succeed .......
