Manx Grand Prix Supporters’ Club Fund

Isle of Man Helicopter Fund T-shirtHere’s your chance to support a great cause and get a cool Festival of Jurby t-shirt, endorsed and signed by three TT racing legends.

Rescue helicopter ambulances are used during the Manx Grand Prix practice weeks and race days. In the event of an accident on the course, one of the helicopters will be despatched, complete with medical staff and equipment, to get to the scene as quickly as possible.

The helicopters, which have a top speed of 150mph, take an average time of five to ten minutes from the first radio alert to arrive at the scene of an incident. Some parts of the TT course are quite inaccessible and speed is of the essence if there has been a crash, so the rescue helicopters are an essential life-saving service that racers rely on.

The rescue helicopters are available throughout the entire race and practice period due to help from the many organisations and individuals who support the fund with donations and fundraising.

Wemoto has designed and donated these t-shirts to help support the fund and you can buy one here for just £10.

The t-shirts are generously signed by John McGuiness, Conor Cummins and Michael Rutter. All the money raised from the sale of these great Festival of Jurby t-shirts will go towards keeping this essential service in the air.

    • Hi Wendi,

      Sorry for such a delayed reply! They’re not I’m afraid. A new design is on its way though for next year, so watch this space!

      Kind regards,

  1. Hi There, I wonder if you can help me.
    At the Stafford Show in October, my husband won “Best 70’s Bike.” Part of the prize was a fab Festival of Jurby t-shirt. As it was size XL, and he is a medium, I was wondering if I may exchange it. I will of course pay the postage etc.
    Thank you.

    • Hi Jennifer,

      Sorry for the late reply. We’ve found a medium we can give you. If you could email your address and contact details to, we’ll get it sent out to you. Don’t worry about postage, since it was won in a prize.

      Kind regards,
