So many memories pidg. Great to see shots of DJ again.



Had to laugh at the footage of Dave Taylor who wheelied around an entire lap - I used to have a poster of him on my wall as a kid. Also Kiyo eyeing up Miss North West



Fabulous tribute to an event with such a fascinating history.



If you watch this and are not moved by Michael Dunlop's 250cc win in 2009 then you have no soul.

first time i've seen a history of the NW200

the Taylor feat was something

i've not watched many racing progs this week and something rang a bell with me seeing your post and i only watched that last night



so if i'm correct i saw a fleeting glance of a "IRONS" name on some leathers

if it was Kenny Irons i saw his fatal accident at Cadwell on the warm up lap many years ago (RIP)

dont know why something has just jogged my memory on that



its good to see in these days of safer tracks health and safety etc Road Racing is thriving

I didn't spot that. Wasn't it Keith Huewen himself who he struck from behind after his bike had developed a misfire? I think he was harmlessly thrown off but was then hit by another rider following.
