TT 2022: Tuesday Sidecar Practice – Three Wheeling Fraternity Entertain



The three wheeling Sidecar heroes’ latest TT practice stint, proved a short one with the session reduced to just one-lap following a moderate delay, due to an incident at Laurel Bank involving Dave Moffitt, whom we wish a very speedy recovery.


Once the outfits took to the Mountain Course it was ten times TT winners Ben Birchall/Tom Birchall, setting the pace.


Looking in excellent fettle with the Haith supported Honda powered outfit, the Mansfield pairing went onto lap from a standing start at 115.663 mph (19 minutes 34.346 seconds).


Second quickest this evening, Sunday’s top runners Pete Founds/Jevan Walmsley (114.326) continued their productive start to TT 2022.


Third quickest, having much more prodigious fortunes in comparison to on Sunday, were the talented Crowe brothers Ryan & Callum (112.545).


Fourth quickest behind the Haven Homes backed Crowe’s were Lewis Blackstock/Patrick Rosney (111.164), who as stated a lot recently, latest TT voyage is supported by former Senior TT winner, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here winner Carl Fogarty.


Rich Energy Bonovo Action Racing’s Tim Reeves/Kevin Rousseau (110.768) took P5 from this evening’s practice stint.


Wrapping up the six quickest driver/passenger pairings, Harry Payne/Mark Wilkes (109.733) continue to impress.


Same notion to applies to seventh fastest overall, Team A.R.C’s Lee Crawford/Scott Hardie (109.709).


Others to chalk-up 105 mph plus lap speeds were Gary Bryan/Phil Hyde (109.4), Steve Ramsden/Matty Ramsden (108.368), Estelle Leblond/Clement Carre (108.233).


Former TT Champions Conrad Harrison/Andy Winkle (107.573), Gary Gibson/Tom Christie (106.461) and the all-French team of Paul Leglise & Melanie Farnier (105.402).
