2017 Manx Grand Prix less than a week away | Road | Sport

With just under a week until the start of practising for the 2017 Manx Grand Prix, the Manx Motor Cycle Club and their supporters are looking forward to seeing some close and exciting racing from the amateur riders competing on the world famous TT Course.

Riders will be travelling from Australia, New Zealand, USA and Europe to join competitors from the UK, Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man.

With last year’s winners having moved to the TT, it leaves the field open for perhaps an Australian win for Royce Rowe who starts the Junior, Lightweight and Senior Races at number 6 or it might be a Welsh win for PRF Rider Barry Lee Evans at number 2.  

The full race programme is as follows:

Monday 28th August

1715hrs; Newcomers MGP Race; 4 laps

Wednesday 30th August

1015hrs; Junior Manx Grand Prix Race; 4 laps

1315hrs; Lightweight Manx Grand Prix Race; 4 laps

Friday 1st September

1015 hrs; Senior Manx Grand Prix Race; 4 laps
