    The TT Supporters’ Club is delighted to announce that Julie Canipa is the recipient of the Susan Jenness Trophy for 2018.

    Succeeding Estelle Leblond and Melanie Farnier – hard acts to follow – Julie receives this prestigious award for her consistent high-speed performances around the Mountain Course as passenger to Greg Lambert. Now approaching lap speeds of 110mph, the pair set off as one of the highest starters after the seeded crews in the 2018 races to finish in 10th position on their Honda GLR at an average of 107.368mph in the first race. Sadly, mechanical gremlins beset the pair in the second outing for the class.

    General Secretary for the ACU and Clerk of the course at the TT Gary Thompson is a smart guy. Following the introduction of age limits in other classes at the Manx, Gary has introduced a forty year old age limit for all newcomers at the Sidecar TT. But it’s not all bad news as Gary explains.

    Roy Hanks, with fifty (!!) TTs and ninety seven starts under his belt has to be the foremost authority on the sidecar TT, Roy is also a director of ACU Events Ltd and on this occasion doesn’t agree with Gary. These lads are close friends but sometimes you can’t agree about everything.

    The Birchalls made their intentions clear from the outset and opened up a 3.4s lead over Holden/Cain through Glen Helen on the opening lap with Molyneux/Sayle a further second behind in third. The Founds brothers, Alan and Pete, with Jake Lowther and Jevan Walmsley in the respective chairs, were occupying fourth and fifth as Tim Reeves/Mark Wilkes held sixth.

    We have the times from Tuesday, the only session run so far.click read more. 

    Tonight's session (Wednesday) was going to be just round as far as Ramsey and then controlled speed back to the Grandstand just to get the teams some laps in and give them a chance to check set up due to adverse weather on the Mountain. The airmed can't fly at all now so even that has been called off. 

    A frustrating week so far..
