Birchall Brothers lead Locate.im Sidecar TT

Two laps to go

The Birchall Brothers have set an outright lap record on the first lap of the restarted Locate.im Sidecar TT.

From a standing start they did 117.502mph, breaking their own record of 117.119mph.

Driver Ben and passenger Tom were 13.19 seconds ahead of John Holden and Lee Cain going through the Grandstand.

Tim Reeves and Mark Wilkes were another 2.81 seconds back in third.

Dave Molyneux and Dan Sayle retired at the end of lap one.

The three lap sidecar race was restarted just after 7pm.

It followed a red flag incident during the first lap this afternoon which involved one outfit.

On Manx Radio TT, John Holden revealed it was the machine of Tony Baker and Fiona Baker-Holden.

The pair were taken to Noble's Hospital by helicopter, but were both reported to be conscious and talking.
