WEATHER CURTAILS TUESDAY'S QUALIFYING

There was more frustration for Classic TT competitors on Tuesday evening when, despite glorious weather for much of the day, heavy rain showers as the roads closed led to qualifying being cancelled for the evening.

Following a lack of practice time for the Senior and Junior Classic TT machines caused by a red flag on Monday and poor weather on Saturday, Clerk of the Course Gary Thompson elected to switch the two sessions for this evening with the Senior and Junior machines due away first.

However, the decision was superfluous as the weather closed in on the Isle of Man with heavy rain all around the course and the session was abandoned at 6.50pm without a bike turning a wheel.

Wednesday's schedule can be found here but with further bad weather forecast, a decision will be made ahead of the planned road closure as to whether the session will run.
