2017 Manx Grand Prix less than a week away
With just under a week until the start of practising for the 2017 Manx Grand Prix, the Manx Motor Cycle Club and their supporters are looking forward to seeing some close and exciting racing from the amateur riders competing on the world famous TT Course.

Riders will be travelling from Australia, New Zealand, USA and Europe to join competitors from the UK, Scotland, Ireland and of course the Isle of Man.

With last year’s winners having moved to the TT, it leaves the field open for perhaps an Australian win for Royce Rowe who starts the Junior, Lightweight and Senior Races at number 6 or it might be a Welsh win for PRF Rider Barry Lee Evans at number 2.

We cannot rule out podiums places for the Irish challengers, Andy Farrell, Davy Lumsden and Dennis Booth or previous local Newcomer winners Peter Wilkinson and Michael Evans who start at 16 & 17 in the Junior and Senior Races and Darren Cooper from Preston at number 3.

Practising commences at 17.20 on Saturday 19 August.

The full race programme is as follows:

Monday 28th August
1715hrs - Newcomers MGP Race; 4 laps

Wednesday 30th August
1015hrs - Junior Manx Grand Prix Race; 4 laps
1315hrs - Lightweight Manx Grand Prix Race; 4 laps

Friday 1st September
1015 hrs - Senior Manx Grand Prix Race; 4 laps
