Road: The movie

Michael Dunlop

The fifteenth anniversary of Joey Dunlop’s death went by a few days ago. He’s been remembered in an article on the BBC website. The Dunlop family is an institution in Ireland. They’re known for TT racing.

Two brothers, Joey and Robert, started the dynasty which is now carried on by Robert’s sons, Michael and William.

The lives of the Dunlops have been told in a compelling 2014 documentary called Road. It’s incredibly well made and takes you on the emotional highs and lows of what is perhaps motorsport’s most unforgiving category.

There’s a trailer for Road after the break. Find the movie and watch it.


VIDEO: David Coulthard, the Isle of Man and the SLS AMG

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

The combination of ex-Formula One driver, revered tarmac and Mercedes’ latest supercar is one well worth savouring. Indeed, Mercedes-Benz made a 3D film about the experience. You can watch the old-skool 2D version featuring David Coulthard after the jump. There’s also a mini making of documentary, too, which is well worth a look.

You might recall Tiff Needell from Fifth Gear tested the SLS on the day this film was being shot. If you’re a fan of the latest Mercedes Gullwing, then watch Tiff ripping it around the Isle of Man TT course once again.

Fifth Gear - Mercedes Benz SLS AMG

In a recent episode of the revised Fifth Gear television program former F1 racer Tiff Needell got some one on one time with the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG ‘Gullwing’. The location for his drive? The Isle of Man. As it is the Isle of Man presents some kind of motoring nirvana; the roads there have no speed limit. However, for Tiff’s drive the roads were closed. With no oncoming traffic to worry about how do you reckon he went? Take the jump to find out.
