RAIN RAIN GO AWAY

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Poor weather on the Isle of Man played havoc with through­out this year’s TT with changes to the race sched­ule days be­fore the open­ing race. It was de­cided on Thurs­day to move the Su­per­bike TT, which usu­ally gets race week un­der­way on the Satur­day, to Sun­day af­ter it be­came clear that rid­ers hadn’t had enough prac­tice. By the Satur­day Su­per­bike race last year, rid­ers had com­pleted around 20 prac­tice laps whereas this year some had done as lit­tle as five, so a full day of prac­tice on Satur­day helped them get up to speed ahead Sun­day’s race.
