Committment, camaraderie, passion and sacrifice - these are the hallmarks of the Manx Grand Prix, an event that invariably attracts a packed entry list of keen amateurs, and loyal spectators. Races consist of up to four laps of the 37.73 mile TT mountain circuit and although there’s no pressure from sponsors and many riders do it for the sheer enjoyment, the mental and physical demands of the circuit, with its narrow roads, stone walls, tight leafy S-bends and open mountain plateau, are never anything less than challenging.
The Manx has long been a superb training ground for many star racers such as Phil Read, Foggy, Hizzy, Robert Dunlop and Jamie Whitham. But who were the names to watch at the Manx GP 2000? Farquhar, Griffiths, Townsend and Turnbull all caught the public’s imagination this time round and here you can relive all the best action from every race and see why some of these riders may not be amateurs for long! Classics are also a major feature of the modern-day ‘Manx’ and here you can revel in the mighty roar of Nortons, Triumphs, BSAs etc. proving their mettle on the track and at crowded club meets.
The Manx Grand Prix is undoubtedly one of Britain’s best-loved road race meetings. To experience the highs and lows of MGP2000 all you have to do is sit back, turn up the volume and soak up that unique ‘Manx magic’...
