MGP won't be renamed says Shimmin

Tue, 22 May 2012

The Economic Development Minister says no firm decision has been reached about the possibility of changing the name of the Manx Grand Prix.

John Shimmin was asked the question in the House of Keys today by North Douglas MHK John Houghton.

Mr Houghton wanted to know if it will be called the Classic TT in future, under plans to revamp the event.

Mr Shimmin says no consideration has yet been given to this and he offered reassurance over the pre-TT classic races.[Play media file below]
