BOSSES at the Manx Grand Prix are plotting a centenary celebration to remember as they look forward to the 100th running of their event.

A full century on from its launch in 1923, Manx Motor Cycle Club organisers have revealed plans for a book launch to earmark the big celebration in 2023.

To recognise the MGP’s status as a hotbed of up-and-coming road racing talent, which has helped produce no less than six men who went on to become world champions and more than 60 who went on to win TT races, the book is set to be packed with hundreds of both historic and modern photos and stories.

Author David Wright, who has already written ‘100 Years of the Isle of Man TT’, will pen the words with a planned publishing date of late 2022.
