2000 IOM - Joey on SP1

I just watched the most exciting 30 minutes I've seen for a while.
2000 IOM TT, Joey Dunlop wins his 24th TT at age 48 on a wsbk fitted SP1.
If anyone can expand on the WSBK fitted part, please do so.
Also, I noticed Jim Moody was riding a I4 Fireblade in that same race. Kinda cool that Honda was represented by 2 completely different bikes in the same race. I think he finished 4th or 5th behind Joey.

Here's all three parts to the race. It's awesome! Check out the cool jumps in part 3 at 2:33 and again a better one at 3:09.

And John McGuiness on the Vimto kitted SP1.
Joey's last race. He was killed later in a race in Slovenia.

I thought his bike sounded like a twin! I have to rewatch. I love the graphics on Joey's bike. Really enjoyed watching David Jeffries, until his bike failed and he coasted to a stop.

I laughed a little, even the great Joey Dunlop made an occasional mistake. Did you catch the announcer saying, "these machines aw equipped with a starta mota..."

I'm still looking for any information about the fireblade Jim Moody was riding that day. Was it a 929?

Your totally welcome Stig and Tommy. I was hoping i wasn't recycling, but I hadn't seen all three parts before.
