TT 2017: Red flag brings halt to action

1 of 1

The remainder of today’s action at the 2017 Isle of Man TT has been cancelled after an incident saw red flags drawn on the opening lap of a two-lap Superbike/Supersport session.

Leading riders had just completed their opening lap when the flags came out across the course, with the Clerk of the Course then confirming there had been an incident at the 33rd Milestone.


It was declared that no more action would take place on the mountain course, meaning the cancellation of the planned TT Zero race.

The plan is now to run the one-lap electric outing alongside the Supersport race tomorrow, but with the weather forecast not looking pleasant further schedule changes could be announced.

Should the weather interfere with proceedings once again, it’s expected organisers will cancel the second Supersport race altogether while the TT Zero could take place on Friday.
