Fourth TT practice session cancelled

Delays in the schedule force Isle of Man TT organisers to abandon Thursday's evening practice, leaving just one session before racing gets underway on Saturday.
Just one qualifying session remains before racing gets underway at the 2011 Isle of Man TT after the fourth day of practice was abandoned due to delays in the schedule.

With the sidecars going out before the solo riders later than planned after an earlier road traffic incident, the session ended at 7.45pm, but a further delay due to oil being dropped between Kirk Michael and Alpine forced organisers to abandon the session altogether.

As such, just one session remains before the first Superbike race on Saturday, with Bruce Anstey currently occupying the top spot on the timesheets, ahead of Guy Martin and John McGuinness.

side order of oil - Unregistered

yh the sidecars have little relevance to road bikes but its something different? And also provide pretty thrilling racing I believe they play a key part in the road racing scene? And if you get rid of them there will only be three classes racing at the TT, what would the organizers do have 4 superbike races think not....
