Hutchinson forfeits NW200 qualifying times

Three-time winner found to use 'non-compliant fuel'

Ian Hutchinson has forfeited his times from the opening Superstock qualifying session at the North West 200 for using non-compliant fuel.

Organisers released a statement saying they 'stipulate the use of a control fuel only in each machine'.

The three-time winner at the event had finished 11th fastest, posting a 117.97mph lap around the Triangle course.

Now in his second year with Honda Racing, Hutchy can still qualify for the Superstock races through a session on Thursday, provided he completes the required number of laps.
