2015 Isle of Man TT Revised Schedule

2015 Isle of Man TT RST Superbike Race Set - Revised Schedule
BMW’s Michael Dunlop

Due to gale-force winds at the Isle of Man, all Saturday qualifying and parades were canceled. The IOM TT says due to high winds near the mountain section of the 37.73-mile Mountain Course, it was impossible to fly medical helicopters.

Winds did diminish, and the planned Sure Sidecar race was initially going to run. But this did not happen, and the Sure Sidecar race was rescheduled for Monday, June 8.

Due to Saturday’s cancellation, the Sunday and Monday TT schedule has changed to what’s listed below.

The first race of 2015 Isle of Man TT — the six-lap RST Superbike race – is set for 2 p.m. GMT, and weather forecasts predict sunny conditions.

Last year, Michael Dunlop won the RST Superbike race aboard his BMW S1000RR. He began the 2015 TT on Yamaha machinery, but switched back to BMW mid-qualifying week. He only had Friday’s practice session, though, allowing little time for adjustments on the S1000RR.

Duunlop will surely be a threat, as will the man who has been quick throughout qualifying, PBM Kawasaki’s Ian Hutchinson (video below!), 21-time TT winner John McGuinness (Honda CBR1000RR), and the current pilot who claimed the outright Mountain Course lap record, Honda’s Bruce Anstey.

In America, Velocity is providing hour-long recap coverage of the 2015 Isle of Man TT. Sunday’s edition begins at 11 p.m EST.
