Manx National Rally cancelled due to coronavirus

Two-day event was due to take place in May

The Manx National Rally has been cancelled due to coronavirus.

The event had been due to take place on 14 and 15 May, but restrictions in place here and in the UK have forced organisers to call off the 120-mile rally.

The rally brings around 1,000 people to the Island each year, and with border restrictions still in place, Manx Auto Sport says it had no choice but to call the event off.

Its not all doom and gloom though, with two local events coming up on 6 March and 15 May.

Rhian Evans spoke to President of Manx Motorsport, Mark Ellison:

If you would like to get involved in either event, volunteers are being called upon for both:
