2011 Isle of Man TT: Combined Qualifying

2011 Isle of Man TT

The first three days of qualifying wrapped up Wednesday for the 2011 Isle of Man TT, with ideal conditions for some high-speed laps around the 37.73 Mountain Course.

It was windy, but riders dealt with dry roads and good visibility after a cloudy morning on the Island. And after all the riders hit the course, Padgetts Honda Racing Team rider Bruce Anstey topped the Superbike lap times with an average speed of 129.695 mph.

Anstey’s time was the quickest out of the first three days of combined qualifying time.

In combined Superstock IOMTT qualifying times for the first three days, Gary Johnson was fastest aboard the Lincs Lifting Ltd Honda CBR1000RR, with an average speed of128.452 mph.

In Supersport, it was Michael Dunlop Street Sweep Yamaha YZF-R6, with an average speed of 125.464 mph.

In the sidecar IOMTT qualifying, the Klaus Klaffenbock and Daniel Sayle team topped the timesheets on a CBR600.

Out of all three IOMTT days, there was two fatalities after Bill Currie and passenger Kevin Morgan crashed. For a report on the 2011 Isle of Man TT crash, click here.
