Rolfo honours Joey Dunlop at Donington

British racing legend Joey Dunlop will be honoured this weekend by 250cc World Championship contender Roberto Rolfo, who will wear a replica helmet featuring the design worn by the Isle of Man TT winner. Dunlop tragically lost his life two years ago in a 125cc race in Tallin, Estonia, and TT fan Rolfo chose the Cinzano British Grand Prix as the ideal opportunity to honour his hero.

`The TT is a race for true riders, those riders that love to take risks but at the same time do not underestimate the value of life even if they put it in danger at every corner from Bray Hill to Ballaugh Bridge,´ explained the Italian. `I truly respect and admire the people who were able to ride it in that way. I am sure that Joey would appreciate this gesture.´
