Motion text

That this House notes the 20th anniversary of the death of racing legend Joey Dunlop on 2 of July 2000 in Tallinn, Estonia, while leading a 125cc race, having already won the 750cc and 600cc events, on the Pirita-Kose-Kloostrimetsa Circuit; remembers with great fondness this working class hero whose humanitarian work with orphans in Romania earned him an OBE to go along with his MBE for services to motorbike racing as a sport; and extends our thoughts and prayers to the family of this true gentleman who is still thought of and missed.
