James Hillier was quickest through the Sulby speed trap at 156mph.

With rain beginning to fall around various parts around the course, the session was ended early and the F2 Sidecars will have to wait until Monday evening to get their first laps in.

Earlier, Mike Hose won the opening Blackfords pre-TT Classic event, coming home ahead of Mark Herbertson and Bill Swallow in the 350cc class at Billown.

Tim Glover saw him cross the line:
