A corner of the TT Course has been named in memory of a popular Manx character.

Raymond Caley passed away in February aged 76.

He ran Caley's General Store and Post Office in Sulby for many years and was a founding member of the Manx Grand Prix Supporters Club.

Economic Development Minister Laurence Skelly said:

‘It is a fitting tribute to a great local character and supporter of racing on the Island that a new sign has been installed on the TT Course. He will be remembered and missed by many who knew and came into contact with him.’

David Knight, three-time world champion enduro rider and friend of Raymond Caley, said:

‘I am proud that we have been able to honour the memory of Raymond Caley. For years he worked tirelessly in support of the Island’s Races and I thank the Department and the MGP Supporters Club for their help in commemorating his lifetime contribution.’

The new Caley’s Corner sign was installed this week and sits at the top of the Sulby Straight.
