The Manx Grand Prix has a new logo to reflect the sponsorship of the event by Douglas-based gold bullion depository and trading company IMGold. The ‘Manx Grand Prix powered by IMGold’ logo will feature on the www.manxgrandprix.org website, the official MGP programme, advertising, and on branding at the start line, trackside, podium and winners enclosure.
Ed Pearce, IMGold Managing Director, said:
“We’re delighted with the new logo which celebrates our role as the Manx Grand Prix’s role as the first title sponsor in its 91 year history. There’s only just over a month to go before the IMGold Manx Grand Prix begins on August 16th and we’re looking forward to seeing some great racing.”
IMGold, which has vaults located in Victoria Street, has agreed a multi-year deal to sponsor the IMGold Manx Grand Prix, starting with the 2014 event.

“We are delighted to have secured IMGold as a commercial partner for the Manx Grand Prix. The sponsorship represents a major commitment to the event and is an important step for us as we look to build and grow the event and secure its long term future. With a record number of entries this year, we are looking forward to an even more successful international event showcasing the talents of many riders.”
