Entries Closed 20 June 2003

Entries have now closed for this year's Manx Grand Prix, practising for which starts eight weeks tomorrow (Saturday August 16). They show a continuing great interest in competing over the Snaefell Mountain Course, both in the modern machine classes and the events for Classic bikes.

The final totals are not yet available, as the organisers, the Manx Motor Cycle Club, sift through and decide how to ratify the numbers for the individual races, some of which are over-subscribed. It is likely that all nine races will enjoy at least equal support to that of previous years.

Among the entries, at least 12 previous winners are included. They are Chris McGahan, Alan Bennie, Paddy Reid, Eddie Byers, Graham Burden, Roy Richardson, Barry Davidson, Jason Griffiths, Bud Jackson, Dave Hughes, Bill Swallow and Pat Sefton.

Other prominent names intending to compete include Kark Wilkie, Darren Burns, Frank Rutter, Alan Oversby, Alex Donaldson, Raymond Porter, Philip Gilder, Bob Price, Alan Jackson, Graham Rhodes, Mark Linton, John Loder, Tony Myers, Davy Morgan and James McCullagh.

Female entries include Maria Costello, Eleanor Forrest, Gail Musson and Carolyn Sells.

There is also a prominent field from the Isle of Man. Among those likely to be in the hunt are Graham Burden, Paul Corrin, Tommy Clucas, Richard Coates, Paul Duckett, Jason Griffiths, Norman Kneen, Dave Madsen-Mygdal, Graham Taubman, Barry Wood, Derren Slous and Derek Whalley.

A number of foreign entries have also been received. They include Manfred Vogl, Stefan Druschol, Franz Glauser, Richard Numair, Iwan Spicher, Jochen Trockel, Reiner Trockel, Thomas Wyss and Alex Tori-Mori.

An interesting entry in the Newcomers' race is former international moto-cross and enduro rider Arthur Browning from Great Barr in Birmingham. He was a regular competitor on works Greeves machines in the great days of the ITV World of Sport scrambles and represented Great Britain in the International Six days Trial. Arthur has entered Bob Pearson's Jawa Metisse in the 500cc Classic Manx Grand Prix and states his aim is to finish in his first Island road race, though he competed in the Isle of Man in the Jeff Smith Scrambles at West Kimmeragh in the late 1960s alongside John Banks, Dave Hickman, John Banks, Dave Nicoll, Alan Clough, Dave Bickers, Vic Allan and company.
