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.

The Countdown has Begun: Looking Good, 2015 Manx Classic!
This year’s event is shaping up to be an exciting high-octane event with cars from 1911 to 2015 lining up on the start line come 23 April!

The event has once again seen great interest from the UK, and overseas too, with one competitor coming all the way from Germany to compete on the island for the first time, in his 1932 MG J2.

From Edwardian racing cars and vintage thoroughbreds, through much loved classics to modern performance cars, this year will see almost 100 cars competing for the title “Fastest Time of Day” at each of the three venues.

A whole class of Bugattis will compete this year, eighty years since the marque won on Manx soil in the 1935 Mannin Moar “around the houses” race in Douglas.  MGs and Rileys from the same era will be represented too.

There’ll be battles throughout the entry, covering all the eras: the Morgan three-wheeler drivers will be looking for class wins; local and UK drivers will be battling it out in minis in Class 2A; the Mustang & Camaro return in class 2D, joined this year by an old regular, the Sunbeam Tiger; then there's the Ford Escorts in Class 4 and the Volkswagens, Mitsubishis, Mazdas and Nissans all in the mix in Class 8.
