Hail showers shorten first practice

Mon, 30 May 2011

Heavy rain and hailstones on the mountain meant a premature finish to the first practice session of TT 2011.

A change of schedule saw the side cars getting the first run out.

This was to give more time for the arrival of the solo riders who'd been competing in the British Superbikes at Thruxton at the weekend.  

Klaus Klaffenbock and Dan Sayle were the quickest with a lap of 110.911mph in a time of 20 minutes 24.66 seconds.

Tony Elmer and Darren Marshall were second, lapping at 106.977mph - a time of 21 minutes 9.7 seconds.

Just a fraction behind were Simon Neary and Jason Crowe who managed a time of 21 minutes 9.76 - 106.971mph.

In the solos, John McGuinness topped the Superbikes with a lap of 122.838mph.

1.8 seconds behind McGuinness was team mate Keith Amor.

Third was Gary Johnson with a fastest lap of 122.463mph.

Bruce Anstey set the pace in the Superstocks with a lap of 122.752mph.

Behind him was William Dunlop at 120.982mph.

Gary Johnson again made the top three with a lap of 120.907mph.

Luis Carreira was the fastest in the Supersport, ahead of Manxman Dan Kneen.
