New ‘Joey, Ray and Rivals’ DVD - 35% OFF!

'From the Armoy side, Joey Dunlop's brother Jim, Paul Robinson, son of Mervyn, Frank Kennedy's brother Bill, and Hugh and James O'Kane are interviewed.

'There are also contributions from William Dunlop, Guy Martin, Conor Cummins, John McGuinness, Steve Parrish and many more, including veteran Scottish rider Denis Gallagher.

'Joey, Ray and Rivals features many unpublished pictures from family albums and photographers who were close to the groups. Also included is footage of racing in the 1960s and 1970s which has never been seen on DVD before.

'Plus, there is a unique interview with McCullough recorded in 1979 in which he predicts Joey's first win at the North West 200.

'The 'little bit of road racing history' refers to a short history of racing in Ulster from the 1920s to the 1960s with amazing, previously unseen film of the Carrowdore 100, the Ulster Grand Prix , the North West 200, the Cookstown 100 and the Temple 100.

'There are also new songs about McCullough and Reid written specially for the programme by Mike Kerry and Throttle the Men, plus a concluding song by Joe Reid.

'In addition, film maker Alwyn James explains how nearly 40 years ago he managed to achieve comprehensive race coverage, including filming from cameras mounted on the bikes. Director and Editor Anna Masefield said:

'“This is a story about the friendly rivalry between two very talented teams of riders who gave the sport some very memorable moments in the history of the great sport of motorcycle racing.”

'Producer Colin James added: “I am delighted that so many top photographers have provided new material to illustrate this programme so the fans will see unique photographs which have been buried in an album since they were first taken.”

'“If you were there, relive those glory days, and if you are young, see what made racing so unique and exciting at that time.”
