 Joey Dunlop Exibition

12th May to 16th June 2001
The Manx Museum, Douglas

As a tribute to the life and triumphs of the great Joey Dunlop, the thrills and spills of Joey's auspicious TT racing career can be seen on large banners adorning the walls at the Manx Museum, Douglas. Over thirty stunning images show Joey in action as well as relaxing with team-mates and celebrating some of his record breaking twenty-six wins.

Joey's Gemini Honda bike provides the centre-piece of the display. It is flanked by three of the major TT trophies that Joey won during a road-racing career that spanned over twenty years in the Isle of Man. The Senior, Junior and Formula One trophies are not only a magnificent record of the history of the TT races, but also document the major impression that Joey Dunlop made on the sport.

Joey Dunlop

This exhibition is not about TT facts and figures, but attempts to provide an atmosphere for race-fans and newcomers alike to contemplate the greatness of the man behind the machine. Visitors to the exhibition may gain some understanding as to why Joey Dunlop was a champion and why he will always remain a hero, particularly in the Isle of Man.

The Manx Museum is open from Monday to Saturday 10 am. to 5pm.
Admission is free.
