DED and Motorcycle club announce new look Manx Grand Prix

The Manx Motorcycle Club and Department of Economic Development have given a definitive update on the future direction of the Manx Grand Prix.

The new look festival will commence from next year with particular emphasis on the Classic Machines whilst still retaining elements of the existing races.

Four Classic TT Races will now take over the traditional middle weekend of racing and August Bank Holiday Monday, with Manx Grand Prix races scheduled to run on the following Wednesday and Friday.

The Manx Motor Cycle Club will assume responsibility for the role of promoter and organiser of the MGP races, with financial assistance being provided by the Department.

Head of Motorsport Trevor Hussey has said the changes where never about DED's dislike of the event, it’s purely about improving an event with enormous potential.
