Northern Ireland motorcycle racer William Dunlop has been killed in an incident at the Skerries 100 road races in County Dublin on Saturday.

Dunlop, 32, was taking part in practice for the event when the crash happened.

The Ballymoney man was a member of the renowned Dunlop family and was a winner at the North West 200 and Ulster GP.

William's father Robert died as a result of an accident at the North West 200 in 2008, while his uncle Joey was killed in a crash in Estonia in 2000.

im sure you will have an absolute blast Blackpoolbouncer.

Its one thing watching the youtube vids and the duke dvd's, but I guarantee you will be absolutely blown away by the sheer speed of them, its feckin unbelievable, honestly. I used to think I was reasonably quick on the road, but now realise that I am in fact a slug, with lethargy, on downers!

 

Agree with the above sentiments about William Dunlop.

What a sad day for his family......, his missus just gave birth to his child a couple of months ago. 

 

But what we must also remember is that he died doing something which he knew the risks of, and he chose to take them on for the ultimate adrenaline rush. But its no good when the ultimate price is paid.....no good at all......

RIP Billy.

 

My mate raced his first this year.  He's been doing the Manx for a fair years but this was his first proper TT.  Me and a couple of the other lads who are all close like, well we shit bricks for him every year... but he fucking luvs it, would kill him as much to stop I think.

And that's the mentality of all them boys they ain't going out there to die they're going to win, but it ain't for the feint hearted I know!

 

He been on to me to go with him for years.  

 

Next years shaping up to be the one though, for lots of reasons.. 

 

So with a bit of luck maybe see you there BB!
