2019 FESTIVAL OF JURBY
WHAT TO EXPECT
On Sunday 25th August, over 10,000 people are expected to flock to the remains of the Second World War airfield in Jurby, which for one day will be turned into the centre of motorcycling extravaganza.
The Festival of Jurby hosts a collection of over 5,000 motorcycles and historic vehicles, ranging from the mid-1920s to the mid-1990s. Sammy Miller MBE will be there, along with a number of special motorcycles from the museum. Also the original Triumph Daytona bike – named after Buddy Elmore’s win at the 1966 Daytona 200.
The Purple Helmets Motorcycle Display Team will be stunning visitors with a stunt show with a difference – not to be missed! There’ll be parade laps by the VMCC, road-racing exotica and invited guests, including Giacomo Agostini, Carl Fogarty, John McGuiness, Phil McCallen, Steve Plater, Brian Morrison, Chris Walker, Ian Simpson, plus a host of other road racing stars. We’ll also be celebrating the 30-year anniversary of Steve Hislop’s remarkable record-breaking 120 mph lap.
There’ll be a host of famous names, TT and MGP winners and riders for you to chat to and get autographs.
We will be in the Wemoto marquee giving away a bunch of goodies and selling our Festival of Jurby T-shirts. Just £10, and the profits go to the Manx Grand Prix Supporters Club to help fund its life-saving helicopter ambulance and injured riders on the Isle of Man. The legendary Dave Molyneux will also be in our marquee from 12.30pm onwards for photos and autographs.
