Revised MGP must be supported says MMC chairman

The Chairman of the Manx Motor Cycle Club, which runs the Manx Grand Prix race meeting, is admitting they either support the proposals for a revised schedule from 2013 or go out of existence.

Yesterday, the Department of Economic Development announced it intends to use the T.T. brand in a new name and reduce the duration of the event down to 10 days, with racing over the August Bank Holiday weekend. An emphasis will also be put on classic machinery.

Club Chairman Harvey Garton is appealing for feedback from the public and says they will continue to talk to the department about the changes.

He acknowledges the past several weeks have been very difficult
