**** sticks :( Another Dunlop.

Just found out.

He left the TT this year due to personal reasons. Wonder why he carried on racing.

RIP.

Gutting, that family have experienced some of the highest highs and lowest lows. Thoughts with them all
Remember: If in Doubt use Full Throttle, It may not make the situation any better, But it will end the suspense...

His wife was having a difficult pregnancy and he was concerned about her and the baby is why he didn't race at TT this year , I presume that she has now had the baby and he returned to racing , terrible situation for her and the rest of his family . I believe Micheal is at the same meeting , I can't imagine how he will be feeling .

Just seen this, he seemed the gentle racer of the family, I cannot even think of what the Family is going through now, heartfelt condolences to everyone concerned. RIP William.

I have no idea how she managed the strength to write that. Truly awe inspiring.

Read that yesterday and couldnt post ;( .

To have lived with the knowledge of WD’s family history and known the probability of a bad end speaks volumes about her inner strength. Reminds me of Dobbsy’s widow featured in “Closer to the Edge”.
