Dunlop was tragically killed following a crash in practice at the event on May 15, 2008.

A 15-time winner around the 8.9-mile course, he is regarded by many as the best rider ever to race at the North West.

Members of his family were in attendance, including his mother, May, wife Louise, brother Jim and sisters Margaret, Helen and Linda. Special certificates, provided by Robert’s family, were given to participants upon completion of the lap.
