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.

A Short History of the Manx Classic
Welcome Veteran Car Club!
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.
