MGP 2020 Schedule Announced

The 2020 Manx Grand Prix race Programme will retain the successful schedule used in 2019, commencing with the Newcomers' Race, on bank holiday Monday 31 August 2020.

On Wednesday, the races get underway with the popular Junior Race in the morning, followed by the first of the two Lightweight/Ultra-Lightweight Races, which run concurrently in the afternoon.

The Lightweight Race will feature the ever-popular 650cc twin machines, while the Ultra-Lightweight Race retains the 400 and 125cc machines alongside the more modern Moto 3 bikes.

The closing day of the event, Friday, sees the action start with the second Lightweight/Ultra-Lightweight Races, followed by the event finale, the Senior Race, in the afternoon.

Friday evening sees the very popular Presentation Evening in the Villa Marina.

Club chairman, Peter Maddocks, has stressed the importance to the Manx Motor Cycle Club, which organises the races, of keeping the smaller capacity machines in the programme because they provide an ideal starting point for new riders wanting to compete on the Mountain Course.

Prospective new riders for the Manx, should register their interest by emailing heather@mgp.co.im. as soon as possible.

The 2020 online entry system and race regulations will be available in the New Year, via www.manxgrandprix.org

Practices for the 2020 event commences on Saturday, 22 August and the event finishes with the Senior Manx Grand Prix Race on Friday, 4 September.
