The Manx Motor Cycle Club have today confirmed the dates for the 2024 Manx Grand Prix, announcing an expanded racing schedule with the return of one of the event’s most popular classes.

Five days of qualifying will commence on Sunday 18th August 2024 ahead of a six-race schedule spread across an action-packed Summer Bank Holiday weekend.


Racing will begin on Friday 23rd August with both the Lightweight Manx Grand Prix featuring the ever-popular 2-stroke machines, and the Classic Senior Manx Grand Prix – brought forward from its previous Saturday slot as part of the expanded schedule.

Saturday 24th August will begin with a 3-lap Classic Junior Manx Grand Prix, which returns to the race programme for the first time since 2019. Last run under the Classic TT banner, the class is home to smaller capacity 350cc bikes and the closely-matched machinery has often delivered some spectacular racing, with past winners including Michael Dunlop, Lee Johnston, Michael Rutter, Jamie Coward, and Dominic Herbertson.

Its reintroduction comes after a period of consultation with the Race Organiser and representatives from throughout the classic racing fraternity in a concerted effort to bolster the entry and ensure the long-term viability of historic racing at the Manx Grand Prix, following a depleted entry for the Classic Senior Race at the 2022 event. It is envisaged that a dedicated race for the popular Junior machines will attract more competitors and team owners to the event, given another outing for period bikes.

The second day of racing action then concludes with the 4-lap Junior Manx Grand Prix for Supertwin machines.

The 2024 event will culminate on the Summer Bank Holiday of Monday 26th August with the headline Senior and Classic Superbike Manx Grand Prix Races. Both races are scheduled to be held over a 4-lap distance, with the latter expected to attract the biggest names in road racing once again on-board iconic models from the 1980s and 90s.


In addition to confirming the racing schedule for 2024, the Manx Motorcycle Club have also announced that there will be further recognition for performances by amateur competitors in the Lightweight, Classic Junior, Classic Senior, and Classic Superbike Races.

Entrants will be classified with either ‘TT’ or ‘Clubman’ status. Competitors who have entries accepted for the 2024 Isle of Man TT Races will be determined as TT, whilst those outside of that criteria will be classified as Clubman and will be presented with a specific set of awards.




The Manx Motor Cycle Club celebrated all the riders from this years incredible event with a Prize Ceremony on the final race day evening.

The RESULTS and photos from the event (provided by Dave Kneen) are now available on the MGP 2023 page.


  Past Winners Government House Reception - MGP  2023 

On Thursday 24th August, His Excellency and Lady Lorimer started the celebrations by hosting a Reception for those who have organised and participated in the races - including many past winners and past Vice Presidents of the The Manx Motor Cycle Club.

It was great to see so many past competitors, who enjoyed catching up in the sunshine and finding their names on the MGP trophies. Unfortunately, due to the rescheduling of practice, not everyone was able to attend - but those who did certainly enjoyed themselves..

Photos from the event (provided by Callum Staley, CJS Photography) are now available on the MGP 2023 page.



The Manx Motor Cycle Club organised a Riders Reunion as part of the Centenary Celebrations for this year’s Manx Grand Prix.

  Remembering Allan “Kipper” Killip  

The Manx Motor Cycle Club directors and members were very saddened to hear of the death of Allan “Kipper” Killip MBE on Sunday evening.

As former Chief Travelling Marshal, Kipper always dealt with all the incidents he attended in a very professional manner.

A staunch supporter of the Manx Grand Prix, Kipper would encourage and give support to the many Newcomers in their preparations to compete on the Mountain Course.

Club Chairman, John McBride, commented "We were delighted when Kipper accepted a role as Hon Vice President, on retiring from his Travelling Marshal duties and attended all our social occasions. It is very sad that he will not be with us to celebrate our Centenary later this month."

The Club wishes to pass on their deepest condolences to his wife Pat, daughters Anita and Susie, son Juan and their families.

  Raul Torras Martinez  

It is with deep regret that the Manx Motor Cycle Club has learned of the passing of Raul Torras Martinez following an accident during the last lap of the Supertwins TT.

Raul began his Mountain Course career at the 2016 Manx Grand Prix with two very credible performances in the Newcomers and Senior races.

An incredibly popular member of the paddock family, Raul’s smile was infectious and his love for sport was apparent to anyone who was fortunate enough to meet him.

The club would like to express its sincere condolences to Raul’s family, friends and team at this sad time.
