Joey Dunlop – His Authorised Biography. By: Mac McDiarmid, Foreword by Bob McMillan
This illustrated official biography explores the life of the most successful racing motorcyclist in the 107-year history of the Isle of Man TT races.
In this classic book, written in association with the Dunlop family and originally published a year after Joey’s death, Mac McDiarmid charts the life of the passionate motorcycle 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. His achievements included three hat tricks at the Isle of Man TT races (1985, 1988 and 2000), where he won a record 26 races in total, as well as 24 wins in the Ulster Grand Prix and 13 in the North West 200 in his native Northern Ireland. For motorcycle fans, Joey Dunlop is still akin to royalty.
