Of course, John McGuinness should not be missed. He currently holds the lap record in this class with an average speed of 113,342 mph. He won the races in 2016 and 2018 on a Roger Winfield’s Paton. Also this year he is considered one of the favorites, even if it did not go so well for him at this year’s TT.

McGuinness will be the first to enter the race. His Paton has won five of the last six years, so it will be difficult to beat him.

Ten seconds after McGuinness starts Dean Harrison, who won the Senior TT this year. The Bradford rider won 2015 with the Black Eagle MV Agusta, this year he joining the LSS Waste Management Norton. A single cylinder Motorcycle.

Another ten seconds later Ian Lougher will start the race. He drives one of the exotic MV Agustas by John Chapman. The bike has the potential to fight for victory, but has not been the most stable bike so far.

Michael Rutter will again compete on Ripley Land Matchless.

Jamie Coward, who took second place in the last two years, also has a good chance to win. He has already achieved a lap average of over 110 mph with the Ted Woof / Craven Manx Norton.

Horst Saiger drives an unusual machine. With the Egli-Vincent he already managed a lap average of 103 mph. A result in the top ten should be thus certainly possible.

Open is still the start of Michael Dunlop. Although he has the sixth starting position, but has not yet made a nomination with what he will go to the start. It is quite possible that he will miss out on the race to focus on the RST Superbike Classic TT.

The start of the race is scheduled for the 24th of August at 11 o’clock.

Der Start des Rennens ist für den 24. August um 11 Uhr geplant.
