• Grand Prix Racer – The Manx Grand Prix
This is not your normal race week roundup but a much more personal, behind the scenes look at the TT Mountain Course’s other race, The Manx Grand Prix.

• Double top for Lewis
Two great jackets from legendary Lewis Leathers, the Universal Mk.1 and 2. I can personally vouch for the quality, having been the proud owner of a Mk.1 suit which was made to measure for me when I was Freddie Frith for a day during the 2011 Milestones of the Mountain parade at the TT.

Lewis offers a great made-to-measure service and only the very best materials. Visit or call 020 7636 4314 for more information.
