CLAS­SIC JOEY

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Joey Dun­lop took his sec­ond TT win in the 1980 Clas­sic race and blitzed the over­all lap record twice. It was a sign of things to come as Dun­lop set a new bench­mark at 115mph on his 750cc Yamaha. He beat Mick Grant, on the 1000cc fac­tory Honda, by over 20 sec­onds. Grant blamed his bike’s poor gear­ing for his loss and claimed he only used top three times dur­ing the race.
