TT qualifying cancelled once again

Poor weather continues to hamper proceedings

TT qualifying was cancelled once again on Saturday as poor weather conditions around the course continued to disrupt the 2019 festival.

Thick fog and standing water led to Clerk of the Course Gary Thompson calling off the session shortly after 4pm.

It means only 685 laps have been completed around the 37.73 mile circuit so far, with eight out of the ten scheduled qualifying sessions having been cancelled.

The first race of TT 2019 has also been pushed back by Mr Thompson, with the opening Superbike contest now taking place next week.

Sunday's session around the Mountain Course will be an 'additional day of qualifying'.
