ISLE OF MAN – Despite the earlier optimistic predictions of the meteorological centER, TT Races Clerk of the Course Gary Thompson was forced to cancel Saturday’s first scheduled practice for the 2014 Isle of Man TT Races due to rain.

Monday’s schedule has been amended to accommodate the solo and sidecar newcomer’s laps.

The revised schedule will see the solo newcomers speed controlled untimed laps away at 18.15 with the sidecar newcomers starting their first lap at 18.30.

Monday’s session will then run as planned from 18.45 with a full solo session for Superbike, Superstock and Supersport machines and a sidecar qualifying session from 19.55.

“It’s unfortunate but the conditions were not conducive to any laps on the course this evening, so the only sensible course of action was to cancel the session,” Thompson said.

“I’m conscious that the lightweight machines have lost time at this stage and I’ll be looking to make it up ahead of their race on Friday.”
