John Surtees M.B.E.Welcome to the Manx Motor Racing Club. Founded in 1987, the club organises closed-roads events for vintage, classic and modern sports cars in the Isle of Man - the road racing capital of the world.

Since 1904, when the first Gordon Bennett Races were held here, the Isle of Man has offered motor racing enthusiasts a perfect mix of racing heritage, challenging roads and picturesque scenery.

Our patron member, John Surtees OBE (pictured left), not only raced on the TT course, but is the only person to achieve World Championship titles on both two and four wheels.

The Manx Motor Racing Club currently organises the Manx Classic, an annual three-day event: one sprint, two hillclimbs, three days of great Manx motorsport held at three different venues on closed public roads.

Our Next Event: Manx Classic 2014: Thursday 24, Friday 25 & Saturday 26 April 2014
