Fans urged to support campaign to honour TT legend McGuinness

Post by Blacklisted on Wed 28 Sep - 4:22

Isle of Man TT fans are being urged to support a campaign to have the career success of John McGuinness recognised by the Queen of England.

McGuinness has won 17 TT races, a tally second only to Joey Dunlop, was the first man to lap the 37.7-mile TT course at more than 130mph and holds the outright lap record.

Now Morecambe MP has tabled a Parliamentary motion for McGuinness to be nationally honoured.

The motion reads:

“That this House notes the contribution John McGuinness has made to motorcycle racing; further notes that he has received a number of local awards but never been honoured nationally; believes that Mr McGuinness should receive an award in the next honours list; and calls on the Main Honours Advisory Committee to recommend that he is suitably recognised in the next honours list.”

Mr Morris said:

“I have received a large number of letters from constituents calling for John to be honoured. I am confident that the work he has done for the world of motorcycling and to put Morecambe on the map is worthy of an honour.”

“He continues to race all over the world; to honour him would be a boost for the sport, for John himself and for the whole town.”

He added anyone who supports the campaign should write to him at The Visitor Newspaper
