Browne fastest in curtailed MGP qualifying session

Riders complete one lap of Mountain Course

Manx Grand Prix competitors only completed one lap of the Mountain Course after the second qualifying session of 2022 was cut short.

Mike Browne posted the quickest Lightweight lap of the week so far with a lap of 113.486mph on the Laylaw Racing Yamaha.

That put him ahead of teammate Ian Lougher and James Hind (Dennis Trollope Racing), whilst it was Francesco Curinga (ILR/Coverdale Paton) and Stefano Bonetti (Peter Beugger Racing Paton) who topped the Junior and Classic Senior leaderboards respectively with laps of 112.773mph and 104.800mph.

A red flag incident at Rhencullen, involving Senior competitor Jim Barnett, stopped the session – he was reported as conscious with suspected hip and ankle injuries and was taken to Noble’s Hospital.

After a lengthy delay, whilst a sweeper was permitted on the course, the second session started at 7.40pm with the Junior, Lightweight and Classic Senior bikes sent out.

Tomorrow (Wednesday) will see an additional qualifying session take place with roads closing at 12.30pm until 4.30pm and then again at 6pm until 9pm.
