1 Mins read

John McGuinness set the pace again in perfect conditions on the second night of the 2011 Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy.

The Honda TT Legends star was quickest in the Superbike class on Monday and went even quicker on Tuesday evening, lapping at 129.041mph on his second run.

Relentless Suzuki's Guy Martin had temporarily topped the timesheets with a 128.261mph lap but McGuinness' flyer dropped him to second, with Cameron Donald's late run securing third for Wilson Craig Racing.

After a difficult first day in which he was unable to complete a single lap of the course, Michael Rutter was finally able to sample the mountain circuit on the Riders Bathams Ducati. The 39-year-old ended the day in tenth place.

Gary Johnson was quickest after the first runs of the evening on the 1000cc Honda. He later dropped to fourth but his 127.717mph lap was good enough to claim top spot in the Superstock class ahead of Street Sweep Kawasaki's Michael Dunlop.

Bruce Anstey (126.245mph) was the third fastest Superstock ahead of Martin, McGuinness and Donald who completed the top six.

Michael Dunlop switched from the 1000cc Kawasaki to the 600cc Yamaha to go quickest in the Supersport class. The Northern Irishman, a TT winner back in 2009, lapped at 125.464mph with his actual lap time 10.69s quicker than second placed Bruce Anstey.

William Dunlop completed an encouraging day for the family with third place on the Wilson Craig Racing Honda. He was the last rider to go over the 120mph mark with Gary Johnson fourth on 119.820mph. Yesterday's pacesetter Luis Carreira was sixth behind John McGuinness.

Qualifying continues all week with live Radio TT commentary and live timing of all 2011 Isle of Man TT Races available at www.iomtt.com.
