Last weekend saw the first group of potential 2017 MGP Newcomers, pictured above at The Grandstand with Club Officials and coaches. As well as local riders, potential competitors had travelled from various places in the UK and also from Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Czech Republic and Spain. The weather was not kind to us but a lot of laps were completed with experienced and knowledgeable ACU certified coaches. Technical Officials demonstrated how to prepare a bike for racing at the Manx Grand Prix and MMCC race officials were on hand to answer any questions and give advice.
The Manx Motor Cycle Club would like to thank the following for their assistance and support: John Batty, Jim Barnett, Michael Brookes, Nuno Caetano, Oli Dupuy, Nick Jefferies, Davy Morgan, Carolynn Sells, Rob Temple, Rodger Wibberley and Shaun Brown. The Mike Hailwood Foundation, Sulby Glen Hotel and The Hydro Hotel also Andy Grimshaw from AGR Racing
A further group will be visiting this weekend and hopefully the weather will be kinder.
