Manx Motorcycle Club speak out against MGP proposals

The chairman of the Manx Motorcycle Club has told 3FM that government has missed a trick in its new proposals restructure the MGP.

Harvey Garton was speaking after last night’s club meeting at Mount Murray where the club outlined its own proposals, which it believes would have a much better effect on the races.

One of the main objections the MMC had was the idea to take emphasis away from the modern classes and focus more heavily on the classic bikes.

Mr Garton said there had been a decline in classic entries for nearly 10 years while the modern machines were still the big money-spinners for the event.

MGP row intensifies following DED announcement

The row over the future of the Manx Grand Prix is continuing, after the Department of Economic Development released more details of its plans for the event.

The Manx Motorcycle Club is concerned that it is being cut out of the races.

The Department is asking interested parties to get in touch, saying they'll be able to contribute to the production of new regulations, something which has previously been put together by the club.

A meeting called by the MMCC last night was well attended, with many of those there not in favour of the DED's proposals.

The plans include cutting the festival from 2 weeks to 10 days, and holding all the racing over a 4 day period.

Teams and competitors wishing to register their interest can email iomtt@gov.im
