That's sad news, after he sat out the TT this year as his partner had problems with her pregnancy.

RIP, William.

I wonder how Michael will look at things now, he's lost his father, his uncle and now his brother, how the hell does that family cope with so much loss.

I would take a guess that becuase they are a racing family they would continue because that is what those that are no longer with them would want them to do. So get into the zone and he doesnt have to worry about it whereas when not racing things may play on the mind so racing is a good form of escaping the pain.

The spirit of the Dunlop family will always rule the TT. I'm not going to say rest in peace because I don't believe there is any rest, just a continuation on a slightly diffrent path. Whether one remembers the previous path is something else.

more tragic news for the Dunlop family indeed..its hard looking in from the outside to see how they keep racing the roads. i suppose its what they have always known. Joey,Robert and now William plus years ago other members of the family died doing the same thing plus many close family friends..

R.I.P... thoughts with his family.


god speed young man.
the older i get,the faster i was :lol:
