This is an edited version of the three videos I uploaded showing footage from the Isle of Man MGP (TT course) in the early 1950s. I wanted to do a short montage using that footage - some 30mins in all! I hope it offers an insight into the event over 60 years ago! There was no audio originally so I just added this royalty free track for a bit of atmosphere...apologies if you don't like it.
The Manx Grand Prix (MGP) motorcycle races are held on the Isle of Man TT Course (or 'Mountain Circuit') every year for a two-week period usually spanning the end of August and early September. The 'MGP' or 'Manx' (as it is more commonly known) is considered to be the amateur riders' alternative to the Isle of Man TT Races held in May and June. The event also differs from the TT in that it does not cater for sidecars. The first race was held in 1923.
