2004 senior Manx Grand Prix winner Davy Morgan secured series of solid results, during a TT 2016 meeting which saw class lap records, race records and almost the first 134 mph lap.
Like many Davy was thrilled at the great weather, for practice week, as he gained lots of laps of the Mountain Course, as he built up to race week.
Race week got off to a disappointing start with reliability issues, forcing him out of contention, same notion applied to the opening Monster Energy Supersport race.
Better luck followed in the Royal London 360 Quantum Superstock TT, as he wrapped up highly respectable 33rd place finish.
Unfortunately luck deserted Davy again on Magic Bullet backed YZF R6 Yamaha, in the second Monster Energy Supersport race.
The blue riband Pokerstars senior TT, ended a challenging TT for the pure road racing stalwart, in highly accomplished fashion, finishing 28th on the Bumblebee Barn backed ZX10R Kawasaki.
A fan like many of his fellow competitors of the Ginger Hall to Ramsey part of the Mountain Course, Davy has enjoyed to date, a top class TT Races career.

One of his most stand out TT moments, was seventh position in the 2006 senior TT, when competing for DMRR Honda.
Looking towards the rest of his 2016 roads campaign, Davy is hugely looking forward to returning to the world’s fastest road race, the Ulster Grand Prix.
This weekend sees Davy in action at the Kells Road Races, he’s set to compete in the open, supersport and grand final races.
