Chris Firmin

Now in his fifth year of racing for Team Molnar Manx, Chris is now well embedded in Team Molnar Manx. Last year Chris rode at only a handful of meetings, but showed pure class at every one, completely dominating at the last race at Cadwell Park, winning every race he entered. Chris began racing on a Honda CB500, where he was a regular race winner, before ridding the classic Honda K4 of Davis Motorsport with several successes, including the big claim, "I beat Lea Gorlay" a title not many will hold! In 2010 Chris was given the chance to ride a standard 86bore 500 with Team Molnar Manx, and he jumped to the opportunity! Chris's love for racing these bikes is one of many things that makes him such a formidable force, saying that racing a Molnar Manx is a "Bucket list experience". This year Chris will contest mostly the "standard" specification Team Molnar Manx machinery at the meetings he can attend.

 

Michael Dunlop

Top Irish road racer will be with Team Molnar Manx for the third Classic TT in a row, after running in 3rd place in 2014's race before his tank strap broke.  This year Michael will campaign a 500cc 4 Valve Manx hoping to improve on last year's result. Michael hopes to push the multi's in this years Classic TT and add to his ever growing collection of TT course trophies. Michael of course is no stranger to classic machines, and is a 3 times winner of the Classic Superbike TT race on board John Simms Suzuki XR69.

Dan Cooper

Dan rode classics for the first time in 2013,and despite a few mechanical problems with the development of new bikes, went on to finish 3rd in the 350cc Classic TT race, and became the fastest man ever to lap the TT course on a 350cc British Single Cylinder. In 2014 he finished 2nd in the 500cc Classic TT, despite the exhaust mounting rubbers breaking on lap one and him holding the exhaust on for the rest of the race. He went even faster than 2013 on the 350, lapping at 101mph from a standing start in the 350cc race, but unfortunately the bike seized at the end of lap 2. 2015 will see him riding for Team Molnar Manx at the Classic TT  as well as a couple of CRMC meetings on the 4 Valve 500cc and 2 Valve 350cc bikes, hoping to improve his finishing position on last year's Classic TT.

Dan Started riding age 11, on Mini Moto's in 1998, and by 2000 was the Southern Mini-Moto champion. A Christmas present of that year was a Honda 125GP race bike, which he took to meetings at North Glos Road Racing Club. As he got faster, he began to get noticed by more and more teams, joining the  Red Bull Rookies in 2003, and in 2006 won the British 125GP championship racing for KRP Race Team.

In 2010, racing for the MAP Centurion Race Team, Dan Raced at the Isle of Man TT for the first time, finishing the second Supersport race with a bronze replica. During the 2011 season Dan was involved in a major 140 mph pile up at Brands Hatch, meaning he suffered a shoulder injury, making him miss the next 3 rounds of the championship. He returned to the TT later in the year, winning 4 bronze replicas.

Richard Molnar

Richard, son of Andy, had a difficult 2014 season as it was his first year running in the 500cc Classic race, riding on Brian Camps 95 Bore 2 Valve Molnar Manx, as well as having a go on Team Molnar Manx's Tickle 350 Manx. However he gradually improved  as the year went on, with a handful of podiums in both the 350 and 500cc classes, and a win in the 350cc Race of the Year riding the Tony Dunnell Manx Norton. The 2015 season will see Richard continue to ride for Brian Camp in the 500cc Class, as well as riding several bikes in the 350cc class.

 

Andy Molnar

The King of building classics, Andy Molnar has been building Manx's, G50's and 7R's for 30 years. Having put his racing on hold for the last couple of years to make time for preparing bikes for the classic TT and developing the 4 Valve Manx engine. Whilst there is still a lot of work to be done, Andy would like to have a little more fun this year, riding his standard bore and stroke 350cc Manx Norton at various meetings over the year.
