The organisers of the 2024 Manx Rally have been inundated with entries for the May 10-11 event.

Over 200 entries have been lodged for the closed road asphalt rally, which may well be a record for a special stage rally on the Isle of Man. The organisers are currently working closely with championship co-ordinators and processing all entries and payments. Competitors will be notified of the status of their entry as quickly as possible.

With 202 entries taken for 140 places it is probable that not every entrant will be accommodated on the May rally. However, Manx Autosport has pledged that anyone who has entered but does not get a place on the Manx Rally will be offered a guaranteed place on the Chris Kelly Memorial Rally, which will run to a similar format on September 13-14. Alternatively, full refunds will be offered to any unsuccessful entrants if they prefer.

Event Director Mark Ellison said: “We were expecting a strong demand for entries, but this has far exceeded even our most ambitious expectations. We understand that people need to find out as quickly as possible if they have a place and we are working to do that.”

In the meantime, the organising team is still seeking support from marshals and timekeepers for the event and interested parties from the island or from the UK mainland should email for details of the travel and assistance packages available for marshals.

With 140 places available for competitors, the event is a round of the Protyre Asphalt Rally Championship, the Fuchs British Historic Rally Championship, the HRCR Stage Masters Challenge, the Mini Rally Challenge and the Manx Rally Championship.

The Manx Rally will run for two full days on Friday 10 May and Saturday 11 May, covering around 130 classic stage miles on the famous closed roads of the Isle of Man. Rally HQ and service will be at the TT Grandstand in Douglas.
