    Saturdays practice was cancelled due to bad weather, it was run on Sunday after a 50 minute delay.

    McGuinness finished 13th on the 600 Honda and 20th on the Norton S/L which promptly broke down on its third lap.

    Dean Harrison is on top for now but Hickman should get out tonight.

    Looks like they will be out on the SL on Thursday although the superbike and supersport (Honda) can go out in the three remaining practices so he will get plenty of road time.

    It looks like Harrison is going to take some beating though and Dunlop has been quick a couple of times but knocked it off in the last sector, so sandbagging me thinks or trying to save the engine.

    Sandbagging, that's what I thought.

    Wednesdays practice cancelled due to the weather. I must be a big problem for McGuinness, Hickman and Hutchinson who are expected to perform. Hutchinson binned it at the 11th on Tuesday and must be feeling a bit sore, Hickman was late arriving and had problems when he got out and McPint needs road miles full stop and they are the experienced guys, I guess it wouldn't be the TT if it was easy.

    Hutchy's luck must have changed for the better to be ok after coming off there, that's a fast bit.
    I heard there's a possibility that Saturday might now be a practice day with the first race on Mad Sunday.

    Ay, I would like to know more about his off, it's that bloody Honda again, it's flawed and is going to kill someone on the roads.

    I hope McGuinness manages to more than “hobble” at the TT!

    Start delayed this morning due to visibility but forecast is for it to improve later with some practise expected and Sundays forecast is better too and may even beat Saturdays.

    You can't watch live but you can listen, hopefully without the need for a VPN outside UK.
