HARRISON TOPS SUPERBIKE & SUPERSTOCK QUALIFYING

After the rain on Monday, qualifying for the 2019 Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy resumed on Tuesday evening with the 1000cc machines getting their first outing on the TT Mountain Course this year. Dean Harrison, continuing his form from Sunday’s Supersport session, was quickest on the night with a speed of 129.53mph while Conor Cummins and James Hillier also went well in the Superbike class.

Harrison also topped the Superstock leaderboard but it was a night that saw a number of the other front runners hit trouble including Peter Hickman, who was forced to stop twice on his Smiths Racing BMW Superbike, 16-time TT winner Ian Hutchinson was another rider to be experiencing problems and the Yorkshire rider came off his bike at the 11th Milestone although fortunately was reported to be unhurt.

The island was blessed with sunshine throughout Tuesday but there were strong winds all round the 37.73-mile circuit again although riders were informed that they would decrease as the evening wore on. After a slight delay, the session got underway at 6.31pm Harrison’s Silicone Engineering Kawasaki was at the front of the pack on the grid but lost power before he’d even set off and the Bradford rider eventually getting away mid-pack on his second Superbike.

Michael Rutter (Bathams Racing Honda) and James Hillier (Quattro Plant Wicked Coatings Kawasaki) were first to head down Glencructhery Road - the pair both on Superbikes, followed by the Honda Racing pairing of Hutchinson and David Johnson, the latter on his Superstock Fireblade.

Gary Johnson (RAF Regular & Reserve Kawasaki) and Michael Dunlop (Tyco BMW) were next to go with Hickman (Smiths Racing BMW) and Lee Johnston (Ashcourt Racing BMW) on their Superstock mounts. However, outright lap record holder Hickman was soon in trouble and after pulling off the circuit at Quarter Bridge, he immediately returned to the pits where he went back out on his Triumph Supersport machine.

Conor Cummins was the early pace setter, posting the best sector times on the opening lap while John McGuinness stopped at Sulby to make adjustments Dunlop was the first to complete a lap with 126.65mph but then came into the pits to check tyre and gearing. Hutchinson lapped at 125.39mph with Rutter at 124.22mph but Cummins went quickest on the opening lap on the Milenco by Padgetts Motorcycles Honda with a speed of 128.09mph.

Both Dunlop and Hutchinson pulled straight into the pits while Derek McGee was posting the quickest Supersport lap at 122.04mph but Gary Johnson was another leading rider to have a troublesome first lap with his speed of 112.55mph slightly slower than McGuinness’ lap of 113.50mph.

The second lap saw Cummins increase his pace and he looked to be on course for a 129mph+ lap before crossing the line at a leisurely 104.96mph. He’d been black flagged out on course with the Honda reported to be smoking with Gary Johnson another be stopped, this time due to a loose camera.

Rutter and David Johnson set the pace on lap two, at 126.48mph and 126.63mph respectively, but Harrison topped that with a speed of 126.68mph on his ZX-10RR Superstock machine. Hickman, meanwhile, put in two laps on the Supersport bike, the second of which was 123.92mph and that made him the quickest 600cc machine on the night ahead of McGee.

He went back out on the Superbike but again hit trouble and pulled off the course for a second time, this time at Douglas Road Corner at Kirk Michael which signalled the end of his night.

On the fourth lap, Harrison went quickest in the Superstock class with a lap of 129.34mph with Hillier the third rider to break the 128mph barrier with a speed of 128.07mph on his Superbike. McGuinness went out on the Padgetts Supersport machine before returning to the action on the Norton where he lapped at 123.73mph.

Harrison continued to make the headlines though and he put in a lap right at the end of the session to go to the top of the Superbike leaderboard with Cummins and Hillier ending the evening in second and third. Harrison remained on top of the Superstock times as well with David Johnson in second and Sam West lapping at just under 125mph to slot into third.

The strong winds were clearly keeping speeds down but there were impressive performances from Jamie Coward (126.39), Stefano Bonetti (124.48) and Brian McCormack (124.03) while Kiwi rider Jay Lawrence also again went well on the Buildbase Suzuki with a lap of 122.56mph.

There were three incidents in the Supersport class. Paul Williams came off at Governors but was reported to be unhurt while Jason Corcoran (Glen Helen) and Emmett Burke (Gooseneck) were taken to Nobles hospital with reported neck and leg injuries respectively.

HOLDEN AND CAIN LEAD OPENING SIDECAR QUALIFYING

After the rain on Monday, qualifying for the 2019 Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy resumed on Tuesday evening with the Sidecars getting their first outing on the TT Mountain Course this year

The Formula Two Sidecars went out just before 8.05pm and there was little to choose between Ben and Tom Birchall and John Holden/Lee Cain in the early sectors on the opening lap but the latter set the best opening lap with a speed of 114.99mph.

The Birchalls slowed towards the end of the lap and finished with 111.55mph which put them fifth quickest with Pete Founds/Jevan Walmsley (112.90), Alan Founds/Jake Lowther (111.89) and Lewis Blackstock/Patrick Rosney (111.80mph) all slotting in ahead of them.

Two of the front runners had problems though with Tim Reeves/Mark Wilkes stopping to make adjustments with Dave Molyneux/Harry Payne retiring at Laurel Bank but arguably the biggest story came from newcomers Ryan and Callum Crowe, the sons of former five-time TT Race winner Nick Crowe lapping at a stunning 109.76mph on their 675cc Triumph.

Second time around and Founds/Walmsley upped their pace to 114.40mph, which was only 2.2 seconds off their best ever lap of the Mountain Course, whilst brother Alan went slightly quicker with a speed of 112.35mph. Tim Reeves and Mark Wilkes also clocked a 112+mph lap (112.291) at the end of the session on their second lap.

Estelle Leblond/Frank Claeys and Gary Bryan/Phil Hyde both lapped in excess of 108mph with the returning Allan Schofield, with Steve Thomas in the chair, also going well at 107.88mph. Maria Costello/Julie Canipa enjoyed a couple of laps with their best (99.369) just shy of the 100mph mark on Maria’s first full laps as a sidecar competitor.

RE: Tuesday 28th May
It sounded like tricky conditions in some places, hopefully the forecast improves.

Is there any update on Hutchy and the other riders who came off tonight?

I hope no other rider went past at full bore whilst IH was still in the road at the 11th.

Quite.
I never want to see any rider have a tumble on a road circuit, but after what happened with Jochem, thats Karma at play.
