Conor Cummins produced the fastest lap on the final day of Isle of Man TT qualifying as the action returned following ongoing weather delays.

With all track sessions cancelled since Tuesday, qualifying practice finally returned as the poor weather and conditions relented on Sunday afternoon.

Despite damp patches on the course, Cummins charged to the top with a best lap of 128.92mph, fractionally slower than Dean Harrison’s leading effort from Tuesday evening practice, while Peter Hickman looked set to post a quicker time before slowing at the end of his lap at the end of the session.

But Hickman did claim top spot in the Superstock category for Smiths BMW with a 128.50mph lap, fractionally ahead of Cummins with a 127.17mph.

It proved to be a nightmare session for Michael Dunlop who suffered a technical issue with his Tyco BMW on his opening Superbike lap at the Mountain Box which ruled him out of the remainder of the session.

In the Supersport class, Lee Johnston notched up a late flyer of 122.93mph on his Yamaha to take top spot ahead of Gary Johnson on the RAF Regular and Reserves Kawasaki.

The Sunday afternoon qualifying session acts as final practice for the Superbike, Superstock and Supersport classes following the confirmation of a new Monday schedule which will see three opening races take place.
