Hundreds of cars are already signed up to a brand new motorsport event coming to the Island in 2020.

The Isle of Man Festival of Motoring will take place from September 18 to 20 next year and is looking to draw motoring enthusiasts from across the world to enjoy festival events and driving experiences.

Motoring tour provider Scenic Car Tours – which is working with Visit Isle of Man on the event – says there’s already 240 cars registered to attend which has been labelled a ‘staggering’ up-take at this stage.

Meanwhile MHK Rob Callister believes the occasion will ‘make the most of the Islands enviable motorsport heritage’ and extend the visitor season into the autumn months.
