Colvin Set For Manx GP, Southern 100 Returns

Seasoned Mountain Course campaigner Marc Colvin, is all set to tackle again this year selected Manx roads events, including the Manx Grand Prix and Southern 100.

A recent Super Twin class victor at Jurby, the ambitious Colvin first sampled the fabled, mythical Mountain Course in 2014, going onto secure a top 10 finish within the Newcomers (A) race.

Since then, he’s gone onto establish himself as a very reliable performer at the Manx GP, banking series of very creditable results, including finishing 14th in last years drama filled Senior race.

Looking towards this years Manx GP, the Peel based racer’s machinery line up, sees him pilot the trusty RC (Rob Colvin) Racing 750 Suzuki, plus the CBG Contractors SV 650 Suzuki.

As aforementioned, Colvin’s 2019 race schedule includes the Southern 100, whilst additional competition around the popular Billown course, will arise at the prior Post TT Races.

Another Manx racer, who’s quietly impressed in recent times, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him amongst the leading local competitors at this years Manx GP, plus be in contention for at minimum top 10 finishes or better.
