Practice cut short due to weather

Thu, 01 Jun 2017

Weather conditions resulted in last night's TT practice being cut short.

Roads closed on time, but conditions on the Mountain Road meant the machines soon had to be speed controlled over the mountain section as the medical helicopter couldn't fly.

As the conditions deteriorated, the helicopter was unable to operate on the lower sections of the course too, meaning the session had to be cancelled before 7.30.

It leaves competitors having completed just one full practice session with two days to go until the first race.

Qualifying is due to continue tonight, but the conditions are forecast to be wet again.
