In-form Hutchy cracks 130mph barrier

Tonight's TT practice session gave us the good and the bad of the legendary motorsport event.

The man in form in the solos, Ian Hutchinson, went over 130mph on his Superbike for the first time in his TT career.

The Yorkshireman was just shy of Morecambe Missile John McGuinness' 2010 practice benchmark lap from last night.

But the session was marred by the news sidecar passenger Joseph Shardlow was air-medded to Noble's Hospital with a head injury.

Driver Nigel Mayers, a newcomer, escaped the incident at Kate's Cottage unhurt.

Time-wise, Dave Molyneux and Patrick Farrance upped the pace again, going over 115mph.

Tomorrow night sees the final practice session of the week, before the riders get down to business for the Superbike and Sidecar One races on Saturday.
