Manx Grand Prix 2022: Practice schedule, race order and road closure times as festival returns to Isle of Man

The Classic TT designation has been dropped and all five races at the festival this year will be run under the Manx GP banner.

Practice is scheduled to begin on Sunday August 21 and the event will conclude on Monday August 29, a public holiday.

The event was canceled in 2020 and 2021 following the Covid-19 pandemic, which resulted in the cancellation of all major road races in successive years, including the North West 200, the Island of Man TT, the Ulster Grand Prix and the Macau GP.
