Yamaha at the Manx International 2 Day Classic Trial 2017

Probably one of our favourite events of the year at Yamaha Majesty is the Manx International 2 Day Classic Trial.  Unfortunately, this year I only attended as a spectator, due to a knee injury, but thoroughly enjoyed the weekend.

The Manx Committee once again did a fantastic job organizing such a huge event and must be congratulated along with all the hardy soles who braved the awful weather conditions on Sunday.

It was a great event for Yamaha’s with Steve Davies, Tony Gush, Graham Christian and Neil Christian all finishing inside the top 8 and gaining 1st class awards in the Twinshock premier class.   In the Twinshock clubman class Yamaha’s were even better represented with 5 bikes in the top 8.  The class was won by Andy Ellis with event secretary Ian Lees close behind in second.   Special mention must also go to Whitehawk rider Andy Blacker in 5th followed closely by local lad Neil Kerruish and German visitors Eckehard Wienstroer  and Michael Ernst who made up the top 8.

Congratulations also to international rider Carl Swanson from the USA who finished the event and finally to Robert Stanex who rode the event for the first time on his stunning Yamaha Majesty 175 Frame Kit bike.
