Manx Grand Prix 2020 race schedule confirmed

In Manx Grand Prix, News, Roads

MANX Grand Prix chiefs have today confirmed their schedule of race action for the 2020 programme.

Next year’s late summer Mountain Course scraps will retain the successful format from 2019 with all the same classes and, as always, the same heated action.

Racing will commence with the Newcomers Race on bank holiday Monday, 31 August.

The additional races get underway on Wednesday, 2 September, with the highly-anticipated 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 once again feature the popular 650cc twin machines, while the Ultra-Lightweight Race retains the 400 and 125cc machines alongside the more modern Moto 3 bikes – and perhaps even a few supermonos.

A second Lightweight/Ultra-Lightweight Races is due to get underway on Friday, 4 September, before the event’s finale – the blue riband Senior race, in the afternoon. And as is customary, the Presentation Evening will run at the Villa Marina later on Friday night.

Club chairman, Peter Maddocks, has stressed the importance of retaining smaller capacity machines to event organisers at the Manx Motor Cycle Club, classes which he says are ideal starting points 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.
