Michael Dunlop wins the rain-hit opening Southern 100 race

The combined 125cc/400cc session was led by Craig Gibson, whose 125 Team Polaris Honda was 5 seconds fasters than William Dunlop's Honda. Steve Osborne's Yamaha was the fastest 400, seventh overall.

In the 250cc/650cc session, Tim Venables' 250cc Station Garage Honda led home a string of 650ccs, with his nearest rival – Dave Moffitt on the Suzuki – 7 seconds down.

The Sidecars also got out, and early pacesetters Ian and Carl Bell found themselves demoted to third as Simon Neary/Jason Slous headed the timesheets, followed by Roy Hanks and David Wells.
