We the undersigned, as supporters of the Manx Grand Prix
totally understand and support the need for various positive
changes to the Manx Grand Prix format to enhance its
commercial viability and appeal.
However we are of the opinion that the Isle of Man Government
may have behaved naively in their dealings with the Manx Motor
Cycle Club, the historical guardians of the Manx Grand Prix,
when formulating their contentious proposals.
It could be considered that if the proposals are progressed
in the current format it will precipitate the demise of the
Manx Grand Prix and deny many the privilege and opportunity to
race on undoubtedly the greatest road circuit in the world
We would hope the government will reconsider their current
proposals with regard to the 'Clubman's TT' and Classic
races in terms of the number of classes and riders, and to
consider alternative proposals which would enhance and
secure the Manx Grand Prix and its organising club.
