Dunlop joins Isle of Man stars at NEC event

Ballymoney’s Michael Dunlop will be part of a star-studded Isle of Man TT line-up at Motorcycle Live in November, at the NEC in Birmingham.

The hugely anticipated 2013 Classic TT will be launched on November 25, with the popular Mad Sunday TT Day on December 2, giving fans the chance to meet all their road racing heroes past and present.

The 19-times TT winner John McGuinness (Honda TT Legends) and fans’ favourite Guy Martin (Tyco Suzuki) will be the leading names, along with Ian Hutchinson who remarkably completed a clean sweep, taking all five race wins in 2010.

Michael Rutter, who is expected to be announced as McGuinness’ Honda TT Legends team-mate for the 2013 event, will be making an appearance, as will inaugural Lightweight Race winner Ryan Farquhar, veteran Ian Lougher and the quiet man of the pack, William Dunlop, who achieved his first podium in 2012.

World Champion Tim Reeves and 16-time TT champion Dave Molyneux, along with his passenger Patrick Farrance will be representing the Sidecars, while TT legends also due to make an appearance include Mick Grant, Phil Read and Phillip McCallen.

The riders will be signing autographs and meeting fans on the new TT Paddock Experience stand in Hall 4.

They will also take part in daily question and answer sessions with TT commentator James Whitham on the Black Horse Stage in the British Eurosport Entertainment Zone.

On Mad Sunday, the TT will take over the stage, with four Q&A sessions and a special TT-themed edition hosted by Steve Parrish.

Advance tickets for Motorcycle Live 2012 cost just £16 per adult, £10 for seniors and £6 per child.
