Big names set the big pace at the opening night of the Steam Packet International Southern 100.


The first practice session of the 2017 meeting took place at Billown last night (Monday) with Michael Dunlop recording the quickest lap on the big bikes from local favourite Dan Kneen and Dean Harrison.


Meanwhile, Manx duo Dave Molyneux and Dan Sayle laid down a marker in the sidecar class with the fastest lap of the session at an average of 100.288 miles per hour.


It was also a good night for James Cowton who recorded the quickest laps in the 250, 600 and 650cc classes.
