Recently did our annual trip to the Classic TT/Manx Grand prix. I thought some of you may like to see (& hear!!) a small part of the 'tribute' lap by Michael Dunlop, commemorating the first 100mph lap of the TT by Bill Mcintyre in 1957. The bike was a 'built from scratch' replica of the famous 500c Gilera and Mr. Dunlop even managed to lap at a tad over 100mph, wearing replica leathers, helmet & goggles!
