TT 2017: Weather Wins The Race On Monday

Unfortunately as on Saturday night, it was a case of weather winning the race today on the Isle of Man, as the opening practice session of TT 2017, was called off due to a mixture of heavy rain and thick mist.

Obviously it’s not ideal for all competitors in particular newcomers Joe Thompson, Paul Jordan and Adam McLean.

The Team ILR, MSS/Hotties and Site Sealants B&W Racing riders, are now scheduled to open their maiden Mountain Course voyages tomorrow.

Which is also set to mark Michael Dunlop’s first Mountain Course outing aboard the highly rated newest incarnation of Suzuki’s GSX-R 1000.

The schedule for tomorrow nights practice session, subject to alterations, is as follows:

6:20 PM Solo Newcomers Controlled Lap
6:25 PM Sidecar Newcomers Controlled Lap
6:35 PM Superbike/Superstock/Supersport/Newcomers Practice
7:20 – 7:50 PM Supersport/Lightweight/Newcomers Practice
7:55 – 8:50 PM Sidecars Practice
