Dave Molyneux Makes it Twelve 4 June 2007

McGuinness' total of 12 wins was matched just a few hours later when Dave Molyneux came from behind to take the opening F2 Sidecar race, making it a doubly successful day for the HM Plant Honda team. Partnered for the first time by Rick Long, who equalled the late Wolfgang Kalauch's passenger record of 7 TT wins, the duo overcame all their problems in practice to overhaul long time race leaders John Holden and Andrew Winkle on the final lap, winning at an average speed of 111.668mph.

The Manx pairing of Nick Crowe and Dan Sayle led in the early stages but after catching and passing Molyneux on the road, they were soon reported as touring at Quarry Bends and retired just a mile up the road at Sulby Crossroads whilst another pre-race favourite Klaus Klaffenbock and Christian Parzer only got as far as Ballacraine. Holden and Winkle then seized the lead and they led the field by just under 9 seconds at the end of the opening lap with Molyneux overtaking Steve Norbury and Scott Parnell for second.
