Super Twins/Lightweight:

Unfortunately the Super Twins and Lightweight machines gained no laps tonight, due to low visibility and damage to the road at Churchtown, Ramsey following an incident, which curtailed the Junior/Senior Manx GP practice session.

With no competitive action tonight, this leaves Jamie Hodson (111.977 mph) and Dan Sayle (106.212 mph) top of the Super Twins and Lightweight classes, following the first four timed sessions of practice week.
