Michael Dunlop Becomes Most Successful Rider in Isle of Man TT History

Supertwin TT Race Rescheduled to Tuesday Evening Due to Rain Delay

Tuesday’s Isle of Man TT programme faced delays due to rain, as announced by Clerk of the Course Gary Thompson. Initially set for a morning start, the programme has been pushed to the evening with improved weather expected in the afternoon. Roads around the circuit will close at 18:00 BST, with the Mountain Road closing at 17:00.

The revised schedule includes a solo warm-up lap at 18:30, a sidecar shakedown lap at 18:45, and the Supertwin TT race at 19:40, spanning three laps. Originally, roads were to close at 10:00, with the Superstock race at 11:45 and the Supertwin race at 14:00.

Michael Dunlop, riding a Paton, aims to become the most successful rider in TT history with a potential win in the evening’s Twins race. Having drawn level with his uncle Joey’s all-time record by winning Saturday’s Supersport race, Dunlop has six races to surpass this feat. He was fastest in practice at 121.822 mph, followed by Peter Hickman at 120.885 mph on an R7 Yamaha, and Jamie Coward at 120.378 mph.

Dunlop holds the lap record of 122.750 mph set in 2018 and unofficially bettered it in 2023 qualifying. He also holds the race record in the Supertwins class. Hickman, who won the dramatic Superbike TT on Sunday, will compete closely alongside Dunlop.
