There is a reminder that roads around the mountain course close an hour earlier than usual, at 5pm tomorrow (Saturday), for the opening practice session of this year's Manx Grand Prix Festival.
The session is untimed and the considerable number of newcomers will be first away at 5.20pm, on their introductory speed controlled lap.
Around 5.45pm, bikes in the Senior and Junior Supertwin classes will be out, with no newcomers.
Then, at 7pm, all other classes and newcomers will take to the track.
Roads should start to reopen from the top of Bray Hill from 8.10pm.
