TT 2016: Conrad Harrison forced to withdraw

1 of 1

Sidecar star Conrad Harrison has been forced to withdraw from this year’s Isle of Man TT after losing two passengers in the opening week.

The 2014 Sidecar TT winner was forced to find someone new for the chair after his previous passenger, Mike Aylott suffered a heart attack towards the end of last year.

Dean Kilkenny was to take the hot seat but left the outfit after just one session for reasons unknown. Jason Crowe was then drafted in to partner Harrison but is unable to continue in his role for the rest of the fortnight.

With no last minute replacement found after two days of searching, Harrison has regrettably been forced to pull out of the remainder of this year’s event.

Three time World Sidecar Champion Tim Reeves along with passenger Patrick Farrance topped last night’s qualifying session with a fastest lap of 114.827mph.
