As we reported in January,  a ‘new look’ Manx Grand Prix event for 2022 has been announced by The Manx Motor Cycle Club and Isle of Man Department for Enterprise.

The Classic TT title has been dropped and the races preciously run under that banner will now form part of the revised Manx GP, starting this August across the traditional Bank Holiday weekend.

Five races for classic machinery and modern-day bikes will be spread across the Bank Holiday weekend with qualifying sessions taking place for a week beforehand.
