The Manx Motor Cycle Club is hoping for some good weather this weekend when they host the first of the 2015 Mike Hailwood Foundation Newcomers Weekends.

The Club is looking forward to meeting some 25 potential newcomers for this year’s Manx Grand Prix who will be eager to learn all they can about competing on the Mountain Circuit from current experienced riders and the Club’s Newcomer Liaison Officers, John Batty, Andy Cowin & Barry Wood.

Travelling from all over the UK and Ireland the newcomers will also be joined by two riders from the Netherlands Dennis Hoffer and Sjak van Dijk together with Yvan Carbona from France.

In addition to guided laps of the circuit and meeting the Officials of the Club, the rookies have all been invited to attend the Hogg Motorsport auction that takes place at the Palace Hotel on Friday evening.

The next Newcomers Weekend takes place on 13/15 March.
