TT 2016: Hutchy's Yamaha legal, say organisers

'The organisers are entirely confident that there is no issue with any of the podium finishers in the Supersport 2 Race' - ACU Events Ltd.
The Isle of Man TT organisers have issued a statement confirming that 'no discrepancies' were found with race winner Ian Hutchinson's Yamaha following the second Monster Energy Supersport event on Wednesday.

A question was raised over the size of the pistons used in the Yorkshire rider's Team Traction Control Yamaha R6, however no issue with the machine was discovered during the post-race inspection.

Hutchison claimed in the Senior TT press conference that key rival Michael Dunlop had 'spread a rumour' that his pistons were oversized, although the Ulster rider countered that it was an official at scrutineering who had initially expressed misgivings over the pistons, which were subsequently deemed to be eligible.

A statement issued on Saturday by ACU Events Ltd said: “As is standard procedure after every TT race the machines of the top three finishers, as well as selected other machines, are subject to extensive post race technical inspections by qualified event officials to ensure that they comply with the TT regulations.

“This technical inspection was carried out on all of the top three finishers in TT Supersport Race 2 on Wednesday, 8th June and no discrepancies were identified in any of the motorcycles checked and no team or competitor lodged official protests.

“A question was raised during the post race inspection regarding the size of the pistons of one of the machines in the top three and the pistons were found to comply with TT regulations.

“The organisers are entirely confident that there is no issue with any of the podium finishers in the Supersport 2 Race.”

Hutchinson is not a cheat, he was just on another level on the supersport bikes. Anyway it's was Dunlop that was caught with the infringement and was disqualified. Dunlop spreading dirt because he knew he had no answer to Hutchinson.

bigphilsp12: RD500 read the text and the reports. You are either illiterate or you are Hutchy! Who still hold the 600 lap record? and who won the senior by over 31 secs and passed you or your hero on the road!!! Its a pity your other hero Mr Brookes wasn't there he could have won everything too just like he is doing in WSBK 'smoking the muppet Rea'. I think you either know p-ss all about racing or your views are just clouded by prejudice.
He won by 31 seconds, Hutchinson was using a stock engine. I hope you know what a stock engine is!! Hutchinson wasn't even pushing hard in the 600 race because he didn't have too, no competition. Hutchinson beat dunlop in the stock and both supersport races, and dunlop pretended to have issues in the supersport race 2 just to make little of Hutchinson beating him. Hutchinson has 14 TT wins and 5 wins the in one week says it all. Deal with it and don't be so salty!
