Robert Dunlop he was one of the greatest road race drivers in history. Second in number of victories and notoriety only to his brother Joey with which today shares the space that their hometown, Ballymoney, he dedicated to commemorate his memory. But Robert's career could have been even more successful without the frightening accident at the Tourist Trophy in 1994. That of the Dunlop brothers is undoubtedly a beautiful story of passion and sacrifice, two working-class-heroes to which the new generation is added, the one represented by William and Micheal, Robert's children.
In the Storie In Moto podcast this week I talk about them. I retrace the career of Robert Dunlop but I speak above all of the unpredictable handover that occurred at the North West del 2008 between him and his son Michael.
During rehearsals, Robert loses his life right before the eyes of Michael and William who unexpectedly decide to run the race. For the younger of the two, Micheal, it will be the first statement and the beginning of a great career.

I am convinced that an informed motorcyclist is a more aware motorcyclist and in his own small way he will act for a better world. For this reason, the articles and videos that I publish on Motoreetto.it are accessible to everyone and without advertising banners because the information must be open and shared.
I am doing it independently and it is allowed by the people who have decided to join my CLAN.
It would be fantastic if you also considered being part of it.
