Anyone been ? Sights sounds smells ..
 
Just dug up a video I shot back in 2010 , Isle of Man , Manx GP ..

A few clips put together of the the old Manx format ..

I hope you enjoy watching this , because I really enjoyed being there and recording it ..

Great vid. Went to the Manx GP last year and enjoyed every minute.

Good video thanks, I've heard that the Manx gp is well worth going to and less manic/ pricey than the TT

It's much less manic .. I'd be hard pushed to choose one over the other ..

Manx ... Less expensive .
Roads quieter , not full of lost Germans .
Racing's on a bit later in the morning , get an extra hour in the nest.
They still race two strokes.
You'll never forget the sound of your first Manx Norton , or Rotary Norton going past on full song.
Get proper glasses in the pubs , TT is plastic .
Viewing spots not as busy/crowded .
You'll see old/vintage bikes you'd only see in magazines or youtube being ridden around by mad oul lads who've ridden them from Austria etc
Jurby Day on the middle Sunday was deffo a highlight but sadly last years was the final one .. But time will tell .

I've done TT and Manx both each year since 05 and i'd be hard pushed if I had to choose only one ..

So much more to say , but , that's for another day ..
Any questions , don't be shy ..
Everyone was new to it once ..
My first trip over I got lost on the course .. Beat that :woots:

Have been going to the Southern 100 since 2015.
This year has been cancelled. If the ferry does sail...I'll still head over for a week.
Great place for a biker!

Fair play RM, it's a wonderful Island to visit - had some friends living there who raced the Manx, didn't Skerrie's Micko Sweeney win [either the MGP Junior or Senior] that year and Drawda's Wayne Kirwan get a few podiums?
