The Manx Trials Club organises and promotes motorcycle trials in the Isle of Man for solo and sidecar machines for all abilities, with the emphasis being on the enjoyment of the sport. Events are held throughout the year for modern and classic twinshock machinery.


We are reliant on the continued generosity of landowners for providing access to the fantastic trials areas we have on the island and wish to express our thanks to them along with our loyal observers who regularly give up their time.


Our premier event is the Manx International Classic Trial which has become a key element of the Festival of Motorcycling and attracts riders from all over the world to ride our classic sections and enjoy the beautiful scenery of our island.



We have been contacted by a number of riders to ask if a decision has been made as to whether this years Manx International Classic Trial will take place, now that the Manx Grand Prix & Classic TT have been cancelled.


We haven’t made a final decision as yet we are waiting to see if our Government can provide any more guidance as to when the borders may open which they have now said they will provide in April.


We therefore hope that you are able to bear with us for a little longer.




We have been in touch with the IOM Steam Packet with regard to the correspondence riders have received advising them to make a decision on their bookings by 12th April.  


They understand that we have not yet made a final decision on our event and advise for those travelling to our event who wish to keep their booking until a decision is made should either select the option to keep their booking or just allow the link to expire and the booking will remain as is. If we do subsequently have to cancel the event then customers will be able to cancel or amend their bookings as per the conditions of the IOM Steam Packet Book with Confidence Commitment
