Sat, 02 Jul 2011

Over 400 bikers are expected to take to the TT course today in memory of Joey Dunlop.

The memorial rideout was first held last year to mark the 10th anniversay of Joey's death.

The Joey Dunlop Foundation is organising the event, starting from the Grandstand at 4.00 this afternoon.

The £12 entry fee goes to the charity, which provides holiday accomodation at Braddan Bridge for disabled visitors to the Island.
