MANX Grand Prix bosses have revealed they will be boasting full grids come the August fortnight as a number of race winners are set to return.
With the changes to eligibility rules announced late last year, double Lightweight champ Andy Farrell and dominant Ultra Lightweight ace Darryl Tweed are gearing up to head back to the even in a bid to retain their titles, while former winners Alistair Haworth and Nigel Moore are also set to return.
And while the numbers for some categories are lower than others, MMCC Chairman Peter Maddocks admitted he and the club want to keep them running.
This will be our second year running the Ultra Lightweight race for 125/400cc Moto 3 and Supersport 300 machines,” he said.
“Although numbers are not as large as we had anticipated, the Club is determined to show its commitment to those riders who have acquired machines to compete in this race.”
The Newcomers C race is also set to return this year.
Qualifying for the 2019 Manx Grand Prix kicks off on Saturday 17 August, with racing on 26, 28 & 30 August.
