Roads close at 5.45pm this evening as the Pokerstars Rally gets underway in wet and windy conditions.
The event spans across the weekend as more than a hundred crews tackle numerous stages around the Island.
Local pair Andrew Dudgeon and Joe Dooley are among the favourites to win.
Dudgeon believes the weather will play a big factor in who comes out on top:
Organisers have made an appeal to people to help out with Saturday's stages at the Lhen, Dog Mills and Orrisdale.
