It’s been 60 years since Bob McIntyre became the first man to lap the Isle of Man Mountain Course at over 100mph. A great way to celebrate this, we thought, would be to make it the focus of this year’s Festival of Jurby T-shirts. All profits from the sale of which go to the Manx Grand Prix Supporters’ Club, to help fund injured riders and the MGP’s helicopter ambulances on the Isle of Man.
We’re in our third year now of raising money for the club, having raised £26,000 so far. This year, we’re hoping to do even better, and you can help us by purchasing one of these £10 t-shirts. Find our more on our Festival of Jurby 2017 fundraising page.
Jacking up your rear wheel during travel just got easier, with SnapJack Portable Motorcycle Jacks by Tirox.
SnapJack lifts the rear end off the ground with multiple adjustment heights of up to .27cm (1/2”). The high-strength low alloy steel jack locks into place allowing the wheel to spin freely for lubing, cleaning and adjusting the drive chain.
How it works
Watch the Tirox demonstration video to see it in action.
The SnapJack is suitable for use with most motorcycles, providing the bike’s side stand is strong enough to support the bike once it’s lifted.
The SnapJack comes with:
Brake locking strap
Secure strap for safe removal
Protective carry case
2 floor protective pads for smooth concrete, painted and epoxy floors
Anyone who’s ever been unlucky enough to have dropped, or worse, crashed their bike, will understand the importance of crash protectors.
Crash pads protrude from the bike’s engine casing or fairing, and in the event of an accident happening, take the impact of the fall, protecting your engine or bodywork from damage. And this damage can be costly – sometimes setting you back in the near region of £1000! But with Apex crash bungs starting at just £25.50, it’s a little price to pay to potentially save LOTS of your hard-earned cash.

Here’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.
