McGuinness already the man to beat at TT

Published: 29 May 2007

John McGuinness has recorded the fastest lap for the first timed practice session of the IOM TT.

The HM Plant Honda rider recorded a best of 18:06.77 for the Superbikes on the second run on Monday evening, which was affected by inconsistent weather.

The session got underway 15 minutes late with Ryan Farquar and Ian Lougher first out. Lougher immediately took advantage of the dry conditions on the 37.73-mile course. 

Ian Hutchinson once again recorded the fastest time pasts the speed trap at Sulby at 192mph, while Martin Finnigan was also one to take note of with his average of 122.118mph lap.

The Supersport class saw Conor Cummins at the top of the timesheets with a best time of 18:51.40 at a pace of 120.053mph, followed by Chris Palmer just over 20 seconds behind. Kiwi Bruce Anstey was third on the Relentless TAS Suzuki was fastest in the Superstock class at 121.350mph.
