John McGuinness Launches the Joey Dunlop 2013 Charity Tombola [Video]
This year's prize is a Fireblade in the Demon Vimto colors Joey Dunlop's bike wore in his last TT win in 2000. 26-times TT winner Joey Dunlop has died at only 48 during a 125 race in Estonia, back in 2000. Friends and fans have started the Joey Dunlop Foundation and started to raise funds for charity.
The main focus of the foundation is to provide housing for disabled children and helping injured riders as Joey's wife Lisa and John McGuinness established it. The annual tombola funds are directed to this goal, and foundation officials mention the hefty donation Arai Helmets has made: 57,000 GBP (more than $90,000).
Each entry is 1 GBP ($1.6) and the final draw will take place in early 2014. Enjoy the recent draw for the 2012 prize and the lucky lady winner not believing she was actually speaking to TT legend McGuinness.
