Manx road king trophies on show
Joey Dunlop
Joey Dunlop was awarded his OBE for his charity work
The trophies of record 26-times TT winner, Joey Dunlop OBE, are to go on display during next year's centenary Manx TT races.

Dunlop's wife Linda has agreed for the memorabilia of the "King of the Road" to go on show to the public.

She hopes that the trophies will help to boost funds for the Joey Dunlop Foundation, of which she is patron.

The Foundation wants to build a holiday home for disabled people as a tribute to Dunlop's racing and charity work.

Five times World Motorcycle Champion Joey Dunlop was killed while racing in Estonia in 2000.

He was awarded the MBE in 1986 for his services to the sport and in 1996 was awarded the OBE for his charity work for children in Romanian orphanages.
