William Dunlop

In News, Riders by S100 Admin133 Comments

It is with much regret and sadness that Southern 100 Racing learnt of the passing of William Dunlop, as a result of injuries received whilst practising for the Skerries 100 Road races on Saturday afternoon 7th July 2018.
William Dunlop first raced on the Billown Course, as a newcomer in the 2004 Southern 100, taking a ninth place in his debut race, the Station Garage Junior Solo Founders Race on his 250 Smith Honda, repeating the feat the following day in the Mann Auto 250 and finishing his first Southern 100 with a fine sixth place in the Harlequin 250cc Race. The following year he only managed one race finish, an 11th in the Station Garage Junior Solo Founders race. 2006 along with the 250 two-stroke twin William had a 600cc and was the third 600 home in the opening Corlett’s Trophy’s 1000/600 race, taking 19th overall. Also achieving 11th in the S & S Motors 600 race and 15th in the Solo Championship. On the 250 he gained a fifth-place finish.

2007 saw the Ballymoney rider claim his first chequered flag in the Harlequin Oil Tanks 250 race on the Flynn
Honda. On the 600 Flynn Kawasaki he was the winning 600 in the concurrently run 1000/600 race finishing 14th
overall, whilst in the then Total Oils Senior race was 15th on the 600.
Missing in 2008 and 2009, William returned to the Southern 100 in 2010 and took two second places in the
Radcliffe Butchers and S & S Motors 600 race, behind younger brother Michael.
Riding for Wilson Craig in 2011, William came home fourth in the opening Corlett’s race and again finished second
to Michael in the S & S Motors 600 race, then on the 1000 Wilson Craig Honda took fourth in the Solo Championship race.
2013 saw a single eighth place in the Corlett’s race and first 600 home.
Entered in later years various circumstances prevented William Dunlop from being present at Billown for the
Southern 100.
William also rode in the ‘Steam Packet’ Races, the Billown TT and the current Post TT Road Races on the
4.25-mile southside course.
As a ‘meeting’ newcomer 2006 he finished seventh in the 125 race. In 2009, when the ACU designated the 125 and 250cc races as TT Races, William took a third and fourth in the two legs, to finish third overall in the Ultra Lightweight 125 TT.
2010 saw the races being renamed the Post TT Races, William opened his account with a second place behind Roy Richardson in the 125cc race, then went on to win his first Post TT race, the 250cc and cement his success with another win in the feature 600 race.
The next year the elder Dunlop brother went one better taking the 125 honours. Giving 2012 a miss, he was back to winning ways once again taking the chequered flag in the 600-feature race.
2016 saw the ever-likable rider take a double winning both the 600 and now the 1100 feature races, whilst last year he had mixed fortunes only managing a third in the feature race.
With William withdrawing from The TT Race this June, he also pulled his entry for the Post TT Races.
Club Chairman, George Peach said: ‘It is extremely sad news to hear that William as succumbed to injuries received on his return to racing it is hard to find words to pay tribute to such a likeable rider.
‘No matter what William always had a smile for everyone, he was a passionate and dedicated rider who could compete with and earned the respect of his rivals.
‘William will be much missed, but his friendship will be fondly remembered by all who were lucky enough to know him. We pass on our sincere condolences to his partner Janine and daughter Ella, his close family and friends at this very sad time.’

One other thing is that if you are marketing your property by yourself, one of the problems you need to be aware of upfront is just how to deal with property inspection reviews. As a FSBO seller, the key to successfully transferring your property and saving money with real estate agent profits is awareness. The more you know, the softer your home sales effort might be. One area where this is particularly essential is home inspections.
