Bad start David. Unfortunately Dario Cecconi has died of his injuries sustained at last weekend's Tandragee 100.

BBC are reporting a compound fracture along with rib and vertibrae cracked. The couldn't pin the leg so he needs an external support. Joey's record is safe for another year.

There is a camera position at station corner showing the bikes approach and leave the corner, at 180+mph on a public road and it is frightening.

Just finished watching the highlights program from earlier today after Monday night's recording failed

Epic Superbike race, great battle between Irwin, Sealy & Hutchinson, Sealy lucky to get away with putting a wheel in the dirt Hutchy really backing it in Michael Dunlop also getting a good result on the Suzuki.

Roll on the TT

Hutchinson wins the Superbike race today from Hickman & Harrison.

Dunlop retires with a mechanical on lap 2 while leading the race by 5+ seconds

Hillier not happy with a slow first pit stop, blaming fuel rig which cost approx 15 seconds, that would have put him on top of the podium, organisers looking into it.

Martin crashes out at 140mph with a false neutral, he looked visibly shaken during the interview but very lucky to walk away from that with just a wrist injury, not sure we'll see him again this week, especially in the Senior race, he doesn't sound as if he has any confidence in the Honda.

This is the only race I have seen so far. It takes a while to adjust to the speeds you are seeing on bumpy roads through villages an close to walls and street furniture -it is both frightening and hugely impressive in equal measure. Guy Martin did look like he stared death in the face!
Terrible events yesterday, sad reminder of the all too obvious dangers.

Cool

Hutchinson has a big off on lap 2 of the Senior TT & fractured a femur, race red flagged, Hillier also had a huge moment at Ballyscary on lap 1


Dunlop wins a 4 lap restarted Senior TT race from Hickman & Harrison
Excellent result on a new bike, that gives him his 15th TT win
