ISLE OF MAN – Isle of Man TT Races Clerk of the Course Gary Thompson, MBE, has made the decision to postpone Saturday’s Dainese Superbike race due to a lack of practice and qualifying time for competitors.
The poor weather earlier in the week resulted in the Monday’s and Wednesday’s qualifying sessions being untimed with Tuesday’s cancelled.
“Even before the house fire that affected this evening’s session, the majority of the field simply hasn’t had enough practice time on the Superbikes because of the bad weather earlier in the week,” Thompson said. “On behalf of the race organization I’d like to apologize to anyone affected by the disruption on Sunday but we don’t have an option. We will endeavor to get the roads open again on Sunday as soon as possible.”
The Dainese Superbike event will now be held Sunday, with qualifying set for Saturday.
