Practice session at Jurby for competitors

Preparations for this year's Festival of Motorcycling enter their final phases tonight, as racers are put through their paces up at the Jurby airfield.

Riders from both the Manx Grand Prix and Classic TT have been adding the finishing touches to their bike setup in a final outing, before official practice starts around the Mountain Course on Saturday.

There's a further session at Jurby on Sunday from 10am to 2pm, with the pit lane open to anyone competing at this year's Festival of Motorcycling.

It will cost £40 per rider, with the paddock opening at 9am.

For more information and to book, please call Darryl on 07624 489715.
