Isle of Man TT organisers have confirmed that the Wednesday race programme has been abandoned due to adverse weather conditions.

The second Isle of Man TT Supersport race of the week had been red flagged after less than two laps following a heavy downpour.

The race had gotten underway almost two hours after it was originally scheduled due to earlier rainfall, but it was called off again as the leaders rounded Ballaugh on lap two because of a shower.

Michael Dunlop had been leading his brother William by around ten seconds aboard his Street Sweep Yamaha when the stoppage occurred, with Dan Kneen in third and Cameron Donald fourth. Gary Johnson had been amongst the leaders, but he retired after lap one.

Fallers included Supersport race one podium winner Keith Amor and Mark Parrett, the former reported to be unharmed and the latter suffering suspected ankle injuries.

With the second sidecar race and the SES TT Zero race also to complete, organisers have now decided to move the programme to Thursday, with action getting underway at 12.15pm.
