Notes[edit]

  • After the cancellation of the first evening practice session on Saturday 18 August 2007 due to heavy rain and low-lying mist on the primary A18 Mountain Road section of the Snaefell mountain course The next Manx Grand Prix practice was held on the evening of Monday 20 August 2007 with the newcomers escorted on their first lap by travelling marshalls and former Isle of Man TT Race competitors. A number of competitors where caught-out at Governor's Bridge including newcomer Dave Yeomans and also John Harrison riding a 600 cc Honda and John Batty on a 400c Kawasaki. Former 1972 Manx Grand Prix Senior winner Dave Hughes injured an arm after a crash at Union Mills riding a 350 cc Manx Norton. At Cruickshank's Corner in Ramsey, Steve Gibbs slipped of his 350 cc Classic Honda and was uninjured.[9]
  • During Tuesday evening practice Brian Spooner set the fastest time in the Lightweight class with a lap at an average speed of 111.288 mph and then suffered a crash at Quarterbridge as did Neil Kent at Ballacraine and both were uninjured.[10]
  • Wednesday Evening practice is cut-short after problems with low-lying sea-mist and fog in the Kirk Michael area. Only two laps of practice are completed by the Senior, Junior and Lightweight competitors. An incident involving two riders occurred at the Waterworks Corner near Ramsey between Marie Hodson and Robert Gordon. Another incident occurred at Alpine Cottage with Kevin Fitzpatrick and Neil Cudworth taken to Nobles Hospital with suspected minor fractures.[11]
  • Again Thursday evening practice is cut-short by reduced visibility on the Mountain Section of the course and sea-mist in the Kirk Michael area.[12]
