The first Su­per­sport race was dom­i­nated by Michael dun­lop and dean har­ri­son, just like the first Su­per­bike race. The first of the four laps saw Michael and dean both do a 128+-mph (206+ km/h) lap on their smaller honda and Kawasaki ma­chines re­spec­tively. how­ever, on lap two, dun­lop quick­ened his pace and lapped the leg­endary cir­cuit at 129.197 mph (207.916 km/h), break­ing his own record that he set back in 2013. The re­main­ing two laps saw Michael in­crease his lead at each check point. dean har­ri­son was lap­ping the cir­cuit at a con­sis­tent pace, try­ing to keep up with Michael; how­ever, dun­lop’s su­pe­rior pace saw the north­ern ir­ish racer win the race with a com­fort­able mar­gin of over 10 sec­onds, thus post­ing his 17th TT win.

dean har­ri­son, who tried his best to beat Michael, was only able to do a best lap of 128.619 mph (207 km/h), which saw him grab the sec­ond spot on the podium af­ter a dis­ap­point­ing re­tire­ment dur­ing the Su­per­bike race. in third spot was an ecstatic Peter hick­man, who, af­ter fight­ing with James hiller, was able to grab the fi­nal podium place with just 0.258 sec­onds be­tween him and dean.
