Extra qualifying session added after bad weather

Race organisers have added an additional qualifying session to this year's Classic TT and Manx Grand Prix.

It's after the bad weather – including low mist - scuppered plans to practice last night.

The session will take place on Thursday afternoon meaning there will be two qualifying sessions on the day.

Roads will close at 12.30pm with the first qualifying session running from 1pm to 3.55pm.

The roads will then open again at 4.30pm before closing at 6pm for the evening qualifying session.

Tonight's qualifying session will take place as follows:

18.20 - 19.05: MGP Senior/ MGP Junior/ CTT Lightweight/ CTT Superbike (no newcomers)

19.10 - 19.45: CTT Junior/ CTT Senior/ MGP Lightweight & Ultra Lightweight

19.48 - 20.00: MGP newcomers accompanied by experienced riders
