Oversized engines believed to be reason for results changed

it's understood oversized engines were the reason four of the five finishers in Monday's Superbike Classic TT race were disqualified.

The results were changed around 9pm on Monday, several hours after the race was completed.

Whilst Michael Dunlop remained the winner, Michael Rutter was promoted from fourth to second and William Dunlop moved into third place.

All the bikes concerned were Kawasakis with 750cc engines.

Two were stripped after the Superbike Classic TT race and found to have oversized engines.  The other two were taken away from the technical  inspection area and therefore excluded.

Michael Dunlop's  Suzuki wasn't stripped down as the engine was measured on Friday and sealed.

Many comments on social media about why this wasn't found out before the race.
