So the Superbike TT is today and in last nights final practice both Ian Hutchinson and Michael Dunlop unofficially broke the outright lap record, Hutchy incredibly on a superstock bike as opposed to a superbike, Michael did a 132.7 on his superbike but very impressively he did a 132.4 from a standing start. No other rider is close to these two in practice but the races are different story, definitely an intriguing contest today.

I heard that on channel 4. What's the weather supposed to be like there today? Good enough conditions to allow the same times/speeds?

Michael two 133mph laps, holds a 7.5 second lead over Hutchy at the end of lap 2, Dean Harrison having a cracking ride in 3rd 31 seconds back on Hutchy but McGuinness reeling him in.

Michael now has a 17 second lead over Hutchy end of lap 3, McGuinness another 30 seconds back in 3rd. If this pace continues the 6 lap race record will be broken by more than a minute.

Dave Molyneux and Dan Sayle will miss this afternoons sidecar race, technical issue.

The RCV joins the 130mph club.

Michael 19 second lead over Hutchy end of lap 4, caught him on the road just has to keep Hutchy in his sight and he wins.

Michael wins by 19 seconds, Hutchy second, McGuinness 3rd, Hickman 4th(first 132 lap today).

David Johnson took the Norton to 7th place and a 130mph lap.
