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 2015: Thursday 23, Friday 24 & Saturday 25 April 2015

Sunbeam 1914 TT Grandstand 2014Welcome Veteran Car Club!
We were delighted to welcome 45 veteran cars to the island in June to celebrate the centenary of the 1914 TT race.

The group included two of the cars that took place in the race, a Sunbeam, pictured left in the pitlane at the TT Grandstand, and a Humber.

The 1914 TT took place over two days, 10th & 11 June, and consisted of 16 laps of the course (in the configuration we know it today), totalling 600 miles. The race was won by Kenelm Lee Guinness in a Sunbeam. The average speed was an incredible 59mph -- during the 2014 TT earlier this month, Mark Higgins set a new record, in a Subaru, of 117.5mph.

The cars, dating from 1903 to 1918, toured the island for three days, Monday 23 to Wednesday 26 June. Read press reports about their visit here: MT TV and BBC
