Classic TT: Harrison leads as weather curtails opening session

In Classic, IOMTT, News, Roads

DEAN Harrison topped the timesheets in this evening’s opening Classic TT and Manx Grand Prix practice sessions before bad weather brought action to a halt.

Classic and modern bikes made their way onto the Mountain Course just after the un-timed/speed-controlled Newcomer’s lap, but the session was flagged just after 7:00pm as conditions began to deteriorate.

But Isle of Man TT Harrison had time to clock a 122.266mph lap aboard his Silicone Engineering ZXR in the Superbike qualifying session before qualifying was brought to a stop.

Robert Burns Ltd’s Manx contingent in the Superbike ranks, Andy Dudgeon, went second quickest at 118.93mph, just over a tenth of a second quicker than Horst Saiger.

TT legend John McGuinness topped the Senior qualifying for Winfield Paton with a 104.95, ahead of Team Beugger Racing’s Maria Costello and Flitwick Motorcycle’s Olie Linsdell at 102.03 and 100.01mph, respectively.

Young gun Adam McLean led the Lightweight Classic order on the Binch Racing Yamaha at 114.74mph from Steelcote Solutions’ Manxman Dan Sayle and Paul Owen.

In the Junior Classic ranks, Geordie troublemaker Dominic Herbertson went quickest on the Davies Motorsport Honda at 99.71mph, just ahead of veteran Michael Rutter and Pete Boast.
