The TT Superbike race has been postponed

Saturday’s RST Superbike TT race has been postponed with the forecast predicting strong winds on the Isle of Man.

The met office is forecasting gusts of up to 50mph on the Isle of Man for Saturday, so race director Gary Thompson has made the difficult call to push back the race until Sunday.

If the weather is suitable, there will now be a practice session for the Superbikes, Superstock and Supersport class at 10:40am – which will be welcome news to Michael Dunlop and the Buildbase BMW team.

The Sure Sidecar race will still take place at 14:00, with the Superbike race now taking place on Sunday also at 14:00.

The RST Parade lap, in which Chris Walker will ride a Kawawaki H2R, will still go ahead on Saturday. 

The revised schedule is as follows:

09.15 - Mountain closes between Barrule Park and the Bungalow

09.30 - Mountain closes between Bungalow and Creg-ny-baa

10.00 - Roads close rest of the Course. All roads on the TT Course now closed.

10.40 - Superbike, Superstock, Supersport practice.

11.50 - Lightweight and Supersport practice.

12.45 - RST Parade lap

14.00 - Sure Sidecar Race

15.20 - SES TT Zero qualifying session

16.00 - 17.00 Roads open
