2013 Isle of Man TT | Tuesday Qualifying Sessions Cancelled

2013 Isle of Man TT Qualifying Session Results

Due to a steady drizzle falling on various locations of the 37.73-mile Mountain Course, officials canceled Tuesday evening’s qualifying sessions for this year’s Isle of Man TT.

The riders, including 19-time Isle of Man TT winner John McGuinness and fan favorite Guy Martin (Tyco Suzuki), were scheduled to start at 6:20 p.m. local time, but the time was put back by Clerk of the Course Gary Thompson MBE.

He hoped the extra time would allow the rain to stop, but after two inspection laps, officials decided to cancel the session for the Isle of Man TT, which already claimed one life on Monday.

This is nothing unusual at the Isle of Man TT; last year’s Senior TT was canceled for the first time in the events history due to rain.

Isle of Man TT reports that “Competitors will have three sessions before the Dainese Superbike race on Saturday but with sunny intervals forecast for the remainder of the week, it looks like riders should get some good, dry track time ahead of Saturday’s first race.”

Following is Wednesday’s Qualifying Sessions (local times):

  • 6:20 p.m. – 7:55: Superbike, Superstock, Supersport, Newcomers (except Lightweight newcomers)
  • 8 p.m. – 8:50 p.m.: Sidecar
