McGuinness takes wraps off Joey Dunlop draw prize

Special Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade to be won in Joey Dunlop Foundation's annual charity draw
A special Honda Fireblade painted in the colours of Joey Dunlop's TT Formula One-winning SP1 from 2000 is the top prize in the Joey Dunlop Foundation's draw for 2013.

The 2013 Fireblade was unveiled by Isle of Man TT hero John McGuinness at the annual JDF dinner on the island.

McGuinness was among 150 guests at the event, which was also attended by Linda Dunlop, Ryan Farquhar, Jeremy McWilliams, Conor Cummins and Dan Kneen.

The Joey Dunlop Foundation is 26-times TT winner Joey's official charity and continues to flourish since it was set up in 2001, providing self-catering apartments for people with special needs.

The facility was officially opened by McGuinness and Joey's wife Linda in 2010 and plans have now been confirmed to construct two more apartments at Braddan Bridge House.

Honda machinery for the JDF's charity prize has been supplied by Clive Padgett in recent years and spokesperson Kevin Quirk of the JDF thanked Padgett and Honda race team manager Neil Tuxworth for their continued support at the fundraising dinner.

Tickets for the special prize can be purchased by contacting JDF House on 01624 677741 or visit www.joeydunlopfoundation.com.
