The Isle of Man TT’s Wednesday qualifying session has been cancelled due to poor conditions as rain returns to the Mountain Course.

After Monday’s session was canned due to rain, Tuesday acted as an opportunity for all riders to make up for lost time in dry and sunny conditions, while it also acted as the first opportunity for the 1000cc machines.

But Wednesday’s qualifying session has been cancelled due to the rain returning along with low cloud and mist making conditions unsafe.

Isle of Man TT organisers have confirmed Thursday’s evening session remains unchanged, while an additional afternoon session has been penned in to provide extra opportunity for course time after losing Wednesday’s running but is subject to weather conditions.

Dean Harrison topped both the Superbike and Superstock classes yesterday, while Peter Hickman led the Supersport times.

Thursday's schedule is now as follows:

11:15: Mountain Road closed

12:30: All roads closed

13:00: Superbike/Superstock/Supersport/Newcomers Qualifying

15:00: Sidecar Qualifying
