Isle of Man TT 2017 Sidecar Race 1

We had to wait an extra 48 hours for the first sidecar race of the 2017 Isle of Man TT but it was worth the wait. Ben and Tom Birchall set an incredible pace from the off and lead from start to finish, breaking their own lap record with a 117.119 second lap. John Holden and Lee Cain reeled in Dave Molyneux and Dan Sayle and that is how they finished to take 2nd and 3rd places. Race 2 is scheduled for Friday morning before the Senior TT.
