Manx Grand Prix 2016 – Wednesday Newcomers Practice Report

With arguably the best conditions of practice week to date, multiple Manx Grand Prix newcomers tonight, produced series of highly impressive performances.

Michael Evans, Newcomers A pace setter on Monday and Tuesday, once again finished quickest this evening, this time upping his pace, to 112.591 mph.

Piloting his own teams GSX-R 600 Suzuki, it’s fair to say that Michael has already showcased his potential to be in contention for Newcomers A race victory.

The same notion can be yielded to Brendan Fargher (110.830 mph) who is competing on the Paul Smyth Racing YZF R6 Yamaha.

Jamie Williams (109.371 mph), Mark Foster (109.117 mph) and DP Coldplaning/TC Racing’s Julian Trummer (108.696 mph) all upped their pace.

Wayne Humble who is loving competing on the Mountain Course set a more than creditable lap speed of 108.479 mph, Spain’s Raul Torras Martinez (108.189 mph) also showed good pace.

Additional notable lap speeds from tonight’s Newcomers A practice session included Paul Williams (107.200 mph), Sean Montgomery (107.117 mph) and Callum Ward (105.644 mph).

Thomas Maxwell (100 mph), has been forced to pull out of the remainder of the 2016 Manx Grand Prix, due to a broken collarbone, which he sustained in an incident two weeks ago.

It was Australia’s Paul Van Der Heiden who set the Newcomers B pace, lapping at a very impressive 106.278 mph.

Jonathan Perry (104.534 mph) and Shirlaw’s Motorcycles backed Marc Ironside (103.457 mph), both showed their growing speed around the TT course.
