Friday Practice Session 28 August 2009

Conditions for the penultimate practice session of the 2009 Manx Grand Prix were described as wet by the Clerk of the Course with strong winds on parts of the course.

Whilst it was fine at the Grandstand and the sun was shining, roads were wet all round the course, Phil Taubman warned competitors to ride within their capabilities.

The first session this evening was for Classic, Post Classic, Ultra Lightweight and Newcomers B.

1829 and the machines were away, with 79 Karl Fox and 89 Anita Buxton first away.

Colin Martin on his Ultra Lightweight Honda was first to complete a lap followed by the wonderful sounding MVAgusta of Alan Oversby. Speeds as expected are well down, Colin lapping at 94.312mph and Alan at 93.769mph.

John Burrows described conditions as ‘Roads wet all over the Mountain and very windy, especially at Windy Corner. He wouldn’t want to race in such conditions.’

1910 the session was ended as the Senior, Junior, Lightweight and Newcomers A prepared for the penultimate session off at 1915.

Junior competitors Kirk Farrow and Steve Moody were first away in the second session of the evening. Ryan Kneen was first back at 95.995mph.

Despite the conditions a total of 298 machines went through Technical Inspection.

Senior Classic 30
Junior Classic 60
Senior 22
Junior 63
Lightweight / Ultra Lwt 64
Newcomers 38
Post Classic 21

The 350 MV Agusta was quickest in the Junior Classic practice at 93.769mph and whilst most riders were happy with one lap, Andy Reynolds and Adam Easton both went for a second circuit.
