More marshals are urgently needed

An urgent call has gone out for registered marshals to come forward as the Manx Grand Prix kicks into full swing.

The biking festival got off to somewhat of a flat start on Saturday when the first practice had to be cut short due to a lack of the essential volunteers.

It meant only the newcomers controlled speed lap was able to take place with 50 riders taking to the course almost an hour after the original start time.

A total of 500 marshals dotted around the course is a necessity for any practice or race session to take place.

Anyone wanting to offer their services is asked to make contact with the marshal team at their hut behind the TT Grandstand.

The next practice is scheduled to take place this evening (MONDAY) weather permitting.
