Solo TT Championship Still Up For Grabs
Prez Racing’s Jamie Coward has already clinched the Privateers Championship, awarded to riders who receive no manufacturer support, but the Overall title and team award are both up for grabs heading into the final day’s racing with only the blue riband Dunlop Senior TT left.
Smiths Racing Peter Hickman and Silicone Engineering Racing’s Dean Harrison can both win the individual honours and secure the team award at the same time with their head to head. Hickman has a commanding lead of 18 points and only needs to finish 9th to clinch the prestigious Joey Dunlop championship and the team award by virtue of his three wins to date.
Coward has dominated the Privateers award and finished the leading privateer in each of the four races that go towards the title – Superbike, Superstock and the two Supersport Races.
In the manufacturers table, Kawasaki have a near unassailable lead of 29 points over nearest rival Honda (56) and strong finishes from Dean Harrison, James Hillier or Gary Johnson will secure the title. There’s a close battle for third between Yamaha (51) and BMW (50) third overall on 51 a point ahead of BMW.
