The previous record of 130.344mph is held by John McGuinness, who was unable to participate in the practice due to mechanical problems. Donald’s top measured speed of 188mph was actually 4mph down on Guy Martin’s meaning there’s even faster times yet to come.

Update: Cameron crashed in practice Saturday morning, suffering a minor back injury and a dislocated shoulder. As a result, he’ll be unable to participate in the race, leaving it wide open.

    A lot of good info from a site that doesn’t cover racing. Isn’t Isle of Man awesome?

    Where can we watch it at?

      You need to subscribe the “TT Live!” through the IOM TT page. We’re looking into running the TTXGP here.

    Some kind soul on UKNova has capped the TT shows and put up the TT Preview and TT Practice as torrents, more to come hopefully. I watched the Preview show yesterday, excellent, to ride through towns and country lanes at such speed is scary to see… those boys (and girl) have big balls..!

    There will be no racing this weekend at the 2009 Isle of Man TT, officials have confirmed.

    After a scintillating practice week, Saturday was scheduled to see the first races of the festival – the Dainese Superbike TT and the first Sure Sidecar race.

    However, strong winds and heavy rain led to an announcement at 7.30am on Saturday that the day’s racing had been postponed. There were hopes the programme could be switched to Sunday, but with no improvement in the conditions expected, it was confirmed shortly before 10am that the racing would not be going ahead.

    The poor weather had already seen the eagerly anticipated visit to the TT by MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi postponed until Monday.

    The Dainese Superbike and Sure Sidecar races will now take place on Monday – weather allowing – with the Superbike race starting at 11am. The Monday race programme, the Royal London 360 Superstock and first Relentless Supersport races, is expected to be re-scheduled for Tuesday.
