Who and what is racing at the Manx GP?

Billed as being aimed more at the 'amateur' arm of the TT, while some big names from June's extravaganza won't be making the trip over, there are still some high-profile names participating.

The headline races will centre around the Senior Manx Grand Prix, which will once again run to the new generation Supersport regulations featuring models from Triumph, Yamaha and more, while the ever-popular Classic Superbike class will see icons of yesteryear - like the Kawasaki ZX-7R, Norton RCW588, Suzuki GSX-R750 and Ducati 916.

Indeed, the Classic Superbike class is where you'll find the highest-profile contenders with the likes of Dean Harrison, Michael Dunlop, Michael Rutter, Dominic Herbertson, Paul Jordan and Nathan Harrison among those set to line-up.
