New Manx Grand Prix documentary will be shown in New Year

'The documentary will provide an interesting and exciting insight into the Manx Grand Prix and the role it plays in real road racing' - Rob Hurdman
A new documentary on the Manx Grand Prix will be broadcast in the New Year.

The film, Grand Prix Racer, has been produced by Isle of Man-based Greenlight TV and was shot before and during this year's festival on the Isle of Man.

It is due to be screened by ITV4 in February, although the exact time and date has yet to be confirmed by the broadcaster.

Rob Hurdman, Producer of Grand Prix Racer, said: “The documentary will provide an interesting and exciting insight into the Manx Grand Prix and the role it plays in real road racing.”

Manx Motor Cycle Club Chairman, Harvey Garton, said he was confident the documentary would enhance the profile of the event, which has been rebranded as the Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling in an overhaul of the meeting by the Manx Government for 2013.

“The club is very excited with the quality and content of the programme, produced by Greenlight TV,” he said.

“I feel sure that the documentary will enhance the reputation of the Manx Grand Prix and encourage competitors to enter the 'Manx' and whet the appetite of enthusiasts to visit and experience what are the 'most sporting races of the year'.

“We as organisers look forward to welcoming competitors and spectators to the 2013 Manx Grand Prix to help us celebrate our 90th anniversary.”

The Manx Grand Prix will take place next year on Wednesday 28 and Friday, August 30, with the new Classic TT races running on Saturday 24 and Monday, August 26.

Practice and qualifying commences on Saturday, August 17 and runs through to Friday, August 23.

John McGuinness, Guy Martin, Conor Cummins and Michael and William Dunlop are among the entries for the Classic TT races next year.
