Lightweight TT record goes

Ivan Lintin retires at Bedstead

Mark broken twice

It's been another dramatic record breaking race at the TT so far this afternoon.

The lap record for the Lightweight TT has been broken on both the first and second laps.

From a standing start on the opening one Ivan Lintin went thought the Grandstand at 121.603mph.

He was leading the race until the end of lap two, when Michael Dunlop took the lead and broke the record again with 122.257mph.

The previous Lightweight mark, set by James Hiller, stood at 120.848mph.

Lintin was forced to stop at Bedstead and subsequently retired.

Unusually for the Isle of Man, there were reports of melting tar at the Ginger Hall before the race started.

Time penalties have been issued to Maria Costello and Dave Moffitt because their crew were using mobile phones in the pit area.
