The Sulby Glen Hotel is to play host to a unique event next month, in what will be known as the Dave Saville Fund Raising Night for the Manx Grand Prix Rescue Helicopter. The event is being organised by the legendry Sidecar pilot who shares the record for the most TT races ever won by a driver, along with the landlady of the Sulby Glen; Rosie Sayle. Irish Road Race Superstar Robert Dunlop is also to attend along with his sponsor Adrian Fagen.

As most of you will know, Dave Saville was left quadriplegic from an accident in the 1993 Manx Grand Prix where he was riding a solo machine in one of the Classic Races. His story since the accident is one of unrivalled bravery and determination to get back to having a normal life with his family. He spent seven years in the Southport Spinal Injuries Unit after the accident and still requires a team of qualified carers.

He desperately misses the Isle of Man, and recently said 'I want to put something back into the racing and the Island that has given me so much pleasure'. This will be his first holiday, with his family, since the accident, and he is really looking forward to what should be a great night at the home of the Manx Grand Prix Supporters Club.

The evening takes place on September the 1st, with a great night guaranteed including live music, a Bar-B-Q, an Auction and the chance to mingle with like-minded people at one of the friendliest venues on the Island. It is hoped that a host of other personalities from the racing world will also be in attendance and we will have more information about that soon.

It seems fitting that this should be the first official TT Website Get Together, and Rosie has promised a warm welcome to all of our regulars. If there is enough interest, it may be possible to arrange transport from Douglas and back for the event, which will start at 8:00pm that night.

This truly unique occasion deserves your support.

We will have more information on the run up to the night as we get it. If you are interested in the possibility of travel to and from Douglas, or you could help with a donation towards the Auction.

If you require any other information regarding the night whatsoever, please e-mail Rosie at or myself at and we will happily oblige.
