2018 Classic TT Results

2018 Classic TT Results
Sharing the Festival of Motorsport with the Manx Grand Prix means you share the good and the bad.  The good being the obvious – 2 glorious weeks of Motorcycle Racing, this year the bad was the weather.  Fog and rain plagued the early stages of the event with practices being severely limited.

The sessions did get run.  Extra road closures were put in place to maximise the competitors’ time on the circuit and as usual the organisers, Marshals, Medical Staff… all had to step up in difficult circumstances.  They all did and as you can see from the results and timings below we got some excellent racing.  

John McGuinness made his debut back in competitive racing (following his 2017 North West 200 crash) showing that without doubt he has still got it – taking the win in the Senior Classic on the Paton and also taking the fastest lap at an average speed of 110.676 mph.

Dean Harrison continued with the form he had from earlier this year in the Isle of Man at the TT Races taking the Superbike win with a fastest lap of 126.041 mph.

STATEMENT ISSUED ON BEHALF OF THE MANX MOTOR CYCLE CLUB : Alan Jackson

RIP Alan Jackson.  Ride free.

Another terrible loss of a supremely well thought of and experienced racer.  

Alan Jackson
Alan Jackson

The Manx Motor Cycle Club regrets to confirm that Alan ‘Bud’ Jackson, 62, from Kendal, Cumbria died today following an accident during last night’s qualifying session for the Classic TT Races on the Isle of Man. The incident occurred at the Creg Ny Baa during last night’s Senior Classic TT session.

Alan was a very experienced competitor on the TT Mountain Course. He made his debut in the 1979 Manx Grand Prix and has four race wins to his name – the 1986 MGP Junior Race, the 1991 Classic Lightweight MGP, the 1995 Classic Lightweight MGP and the 1998 Classic Lightweight MGP as well as six other MGP podiums. He also competed in the TT Races and had a highest finish of fifth place in the 1990 Ultra Lightweight TT.

The Manx Motor Cycle Club wishes to pass on their deepest sympathy to Alan’s wife Elaine, son Paul, daughter Emma and his other family members and friends.

Manx GP and Classic TT Number Plates / Colour Schemes

With so many categories racing in the Manx GP and Classic TT events I have pulled this information from the ‘Regulations Supplement’ book for easy reference (and in case you were not aware.)

Now you will be able to easily identify a motorcycle, the class and the event it is racing in just by its racing number and the colour of its back plate.
