Highlights of this year’s Manx Grand Prix Races will be available for viewers to see on the internet.

The race organiser, the Manx Motor Cycle Club, is calling on spectators and fans to contact it with any footage shot of the racing or practising so it can be uploaded and shared with others.

The call has also been made to any of the racers who completed laps of the course carrying on-bike cameras to record their laps.

In addition the event was filmed by Greenlight Television who put footage on to its own web channel MGP TV which includes coverage of the event during the second week.

Last year the island television company filmed throughout the race fortnight and produced the film Grand Prix Racer which has been shown on ITV4 and was also shown at the Villa Marina.

Focusing principally on the newcomers the film gave a vivid insight into the backgrounds, aspirations and fears of the riders at the prospect of tackling the famous Mountain Course for the first time.

Manx Motor Cycle Club chairman Harvey Garton said they were delighted to be working again with Greenlight after their successful collaboration over the Grand Prix Racer film last year.

‘In this new format we were able to make available a practice report and same day race coverage. This year we had an excellent entry in all the classes including the Newcomers which attracted a record 65 entries.

MGP TV will be accessible through http://www.manxgrandprix.org or www.youtube.com/themanxgrandprix
