But, but, but, hang on a minute, they forgot to put Guy Martin's name on the list......

Seriously, was there any need to put any name other than M. Dunlop?
Senior TT winner, on a brand new bike....can't honestly think of anyone else could pull that off.
And just for laughs, goes out on a "parade" lap at the Manx GP on a replica 1957 Gilera 500, complete with dustbin fairing, pudding basin helmet and goggles. Never rode the bike until he bump-started it on Glencrutchery Road, lost the clutch half way round, didn't even know it only had 5, not 6 gears, but still managed a 100mph lap, to commemorate the first 100mph lap by Bob McIntyre on a Gilera in 1957.

What a boy.
