TT Practice Week 2009[edit]

The first practice session for 2009 Isle of Man TT races featured an evening untimed practice session and newcomers control lap on Saturday 30 May 2009 held in almost perfect weather conditions. The first practice session suffered a 40 minute delay due to livestock too close to the course at Ballacrye Corner near Ballaugh. The Newcomers Control Lap was led away from the TT Grandstand by the TT Travelling Marshals and a steady pace set by the accompanying experienced Isle of Man TT competitors including former TT winner and rider's lasion officer Richard Quayle and former Manx Grand Prix winners Nigel Beattie and Paul Duckett. The newcomers control group included a number of new competitors from the United States, Marc Fissette from Belgium, Luis Carreira from Portugal and the Japanese rider Yoshinari Matsushita. The newcomers control group also included one female competitor, Jenny Tinmouth, and a number of outfits for the Sidecar TT accompanied by experienced TT sidecar competitors Roy Hanks/Dave Wells and Tony Baker/Fiona Baker-Milligan. The first competitor away from the TT Grandstand in the main solo class for the first untimed practice session was the Gary Johnson riding a 1000 cc Honda and the 2008 Senior TT winner John McGuinness also riding a 1000 cc Honda set an unofficial lap at an average speed of 125 mph on the Snaefell Mountain Course. After suffering a minor oil leak and completing only two laps, McGuinness stated, "I'm glad to get that one out of the way. The first two laps settled me. I've had butterflies in my stomach all day. I was a bit nervous."[2] The new Norton motorcycle entry ridden by Michael Dunlop suffered mechanical problems and stopped at Glen Helen on the first lap of practice for the motorcycle as did the LCR 600 cc Honda outfit of former TT sidecar winner Nick Crowe/Mark Cox near the 2nd Milestone. The 2009 TT newcomer Scott Jensen from Colorado slipped off at Union Mills and Steve McDonald at Braddan Bridge and both were taken to Nobles Hospital to be later released after a medical check-up.

Practice at the 2009 Isle of Man TT races continued on Monday 1 June 2009 with a 40 minute delay to reorganise TT Marshals on the Mountain Section of the Snaefell Mountain Course. The German TT newcomer, Rico Penzofer and triple 2008 Manx Grand Prix winner Dan Kneen completed their control-lap before the start of main evening practice session. The winner of the 2007 Supersport TT Race, Ian Hutchinson pulled in at Ballacraine on the first lap of Monday practice and John McGuinness recorded a lap of 124.35 mph after a broken gear-lever on the high speed Crosby section left his Honda motorcycle jammed in 6th gear.[3] The 2009 Sidecar TT winner Nick Crowe/Mark Cox again failed to record a time on Monday practice after continuing problems with the engine ignition system. The evening practice for Tuesday 2 June 2009 was held in slightly cooler weather conditions and the problems for the first two sessions of glaring sun and flies were reduced for competitors. It was again McGuinness that dominated practice in the Superbike class with a lap of 17 minutes 27.56 seconds an average speed of 129.661 mph. The sidecar TT class was led by Nick Crowe/Mark Cox with a lap of 19 minutes 39.43 seconds an average speed of 114.697 mph. The Suzuki sidecar outfit of Tim Reeves/Patrick Farrance stopped at Keppel Gate on Monday evening practice with a blocked fuel lift pump and then stopped again on Tuesday evening practice at Sulby crossroads with a snapped throttle cable, although completing the lap after borrowing a new cable from a local lawnmower dealer. The American Isle of Man TT newcomer James Vanderhaar slipped-off at Sulby Bridge and Roger Maher hit the bales at Glen Helen. The 600 cc LCR Honda sidecar outfit of David Wallis/Sally Wilson crashed at the 13th Milestone and the crew evacuated by the Medical Helicopter to Nobles Hospital.

The Wednesday evening practice session was again dominated by John McGuinness riding a 1000 cc in the Superbike class, unofficially breaking the lap record with a time of 17 minutes and 23.46 seconds an average speed of 130.171 mph. This was only the second lap at an average speed exceeding 130 mph and was completed after a heavy landing at Ballaugh Bridge by John McGuinness that his crash helmet collided with the fairing and McGuinness said later;- "I rode the remainder of the lap with a broken screen."[4] In the Supersport Junior TT class, Michael Dunlop riding a 600 cc Yamaha jumped into 2nd place on the practice leaderboard with a time of 18 minutes 5.88 seconds an average speed of 125.085 mph. The 2007 Lightweight Manx Grand Prix winner, Olie Linsdell crashed on the bumpy Glentramman section during Wednesday evening practice. After being stranded at Parliament Square on Wednesday evening with a loose battery, Cameron Donald riding a 1000 cc Suzuki lapped faster than McGuinness in a time of 17 minutes 13.25 seconds an average speed of 131.457 mph in the Thursday evening practice session. A third lap of over 130 mph for the 2009 Isle of Man TT races was recorded by his Suzuki teammate, Bruce Anstey in 17 minutes 23.79 seconds an average speed of 130.129 mph. In the Supersport class, Michael Dunlop set an even faster time for the Junior TT during Thursday practice in 17 minutes and 55.45 seconds an average speed of 126.299 mph. The practice for the Sidecar TT class was red-flagged after a few competitors had left the TT Grandstand after the outfit 600 cc DMR Honda of Karl Bennett/Lee Cain caught fire at Douglas Road Corner in Kirk Michael. Also an oil-spillage on Bray Hill caused a high speed spin for the sidecar of David Atkinson/Jane Wheatcroft at St Ninian's Crossroads which led to the session being halted. The Friday evening practice of 5 June 2009 was held in the same hot weather, with a strong north-west wind on the Mountain Section of the course. The sidecar practice was extended by 30 minutes after the Thursday night postponement, although the times for both solo and sidecar classes were not generally as fast as the previous evening. After setting the fastest time on Thursday evening practice, Cameron Donald missed a gear change on the approach to Keppel Gate, running wide onto a grass bank and crashing on the uneven surface. A dislocated left shoulder and back injury forced Cameron Donald out of the 2009 Isle of Man TT Races.

The 2009 Superbike TT Race was scheduled for mid-day start on Saturday 6 June 2009 and to be flagged away by the former world motorcycling champion Giacomo Agostini and was delayed 48 hours due to inclement weather conditions.

Over the Mountain Section of the course, John McGuinness maintained a 5.14 second lead over Conor Cummins at the end of lap 1in a time of 17 minutes, 26.61 seconds an average speed of 129.779 mph.[6]

The pace continued on lap 2 with McGuinness increasing his lead with Guy Martin moving into second place and Steve Plater in third with the unfortunate Conor Cummins slipping down to 4th place. With pits-stops at the end of lap 2, John McGuinness now led by 10.79 seconds and set a new outright course record of 17 minutes, 21.29 seconds an average speed of 130.442 mph. A slow pit-stop by Conor Cummins caused by the chain on his 1000 cc Kawasaki caused him to slip down the leaderboard to sixth place behind the Honda of Gary Johnson. The TT Grandstand stop box was overshot by Keith Amor riding a 1000 cc Honda motorcycle on lap 2 incurring a 10 second race penalty. An engine mis-fire forced Keith Amour to retire at Ballacraine on lap 3. After pushing-in on lap 2 the 1000 cc Yamaha of Michael Dunlop retired at the pits and a further retirement at the TT Grandstand was the 1000 cc Kawasaki of Ryan Farquhar with an oil leak from a replacement TT Superstock engine.

The 1000 cc Yamaha of Michael Rutter retired on lap 4 at Parliament Square, Ramsey with a broken gear-lever. At the pit-stops at the end of lap 4, John McGuinness increased his lead slightly to 9.14 with a lap averaging 129.318 mph. With an extra burst of speed McGuinness increased his lead over Steve Plater to 11 seconds on lap 5 and to 19.57 seconds at the official timing point at Ramsey on the last lap. The 2009 Superbike TT Race was won by John McGuinness in a new race record of 1 hour, 46 minutes and 7.16 seconds at an average race speed of 127.996 mph. This provided John McGuinness with a historic 15th win and speaking after the race, McGuinness said;- "I don't know what to say about being ahead of Hailwood, Mike Hailwood is the hero of the people of my dad's generation."[7] In celebrating their 50th Anniversary of Isle of Man TT Racing for the Honda marque, McGuinness mentioned that;- "I had to admit that I was feeling the pressure a bit with so many functions going on and so many Honda people over here expecting the victory....It is great to repay them with a victory and also for Honda to have a 1-2-3 finish in the race."[8] In second place Steve Plater commented about the Superbike TT that "I made improvements in my lap times and I am happy with the way I rode – you never stop learning around here and it is a different mind set to riding the short circuits, which I'done at Thruxton ten days earlier."[8] In contrast, Guy Martin in third place explaining that he thought that his front suspension forks required further adjustment mentioned that "The bike is great in straight lines, but not in corners – I've had cracking pit stops, the bike has not missed a beat, so it is down to me and I'm not here to make up the numbers – I wanted the win."[8]

The 1000 cc Honda of Ian Hutchinson finished in fourth place after the Kawasaki machine of Conor Cummins suffered an engine failure on the Verandah on the last lap. The fifth place finish in the Superbike TT went to the Honda of Gary Johnson with Adrian Archibald the first Suzuki finisher in sixth place and Ian Lougher finishing seventh after making his 100th Isle of Man TT race start.

After the Superbike TT race the former World Motor-Cycling champion and Isle of Man TT winner Giacomo Agostini completed a demonstration parade lap of Snaefell Mountain Course riding a MV Agusta motorcycle accompanied by the current world champion Valentino Rossi riding a 1000 cc Yamaha R1 motorcycle. Both Giacomo Agostini and Valentino Rossi had watched the 2009 Superbike TT race from a vantage point on Quarterbridge Road in Douglas and Valentino Rossi described the experience as;- "Watching from Ago's Leap is impressive, speed is unbelievable even from the outside but I think it feels more fast from the outside. With the walls and houses it is a great show and it feels like a GP from 30 years ago..."[10] Afterwards, Valentino Rossi made the presentations to the winner John McGuinness of the Superbike TT race and congratulated McGuinness by saying;- "You are a true gladiator of the sport to ride that fast at the TT."[10] Describing the parade lap, Giacomo Agostini said that;- "We went as fast today as I used to when I raced here."[10]

The pole time for the 2009 Sidecar TT Race 'A' was set by the 600 cc LCR Honda outfit of Nick Crowe/Mark Cox at an average speed of 116.063 mph during the Wednesday evening practice session.

Pretty Mint."[11] The new race record was 7.15 seconds faster than the previous 2005 race record and the first Sidecar TT race under 59 minutes for the 3 lap and 113.00 mile event. It was Dan Sayle that commented that Dave Molyneux rebuilt the engine the night before from the parts from 3 engines using the Suzuki workshop engine manual;- "...the outfit felt a lot looser today, skitting around on the road, but Dave's some boy. He only decided to build a fresh motor last night – and believe me he's no engine builder. But it was obviously worth it."[11] In second place for 2009 Sidecar TT Race 'A' was Phillip Dongworth/Gary Partridge at an average race speed of 113.404 mph and Phillip Dongworth said that;- "I've been trying for 9 or 10 years to get to the podium and I'm delighted with our final lap of more than 114 mph too.

With the delayed Superbike and Sidecar Race 'A' the race to be held on Monday were moved to Tuesday 9 June 2009 with an amended race schedule with the first race being held was the 4 lap (150.73 mile) Supersport Race 1. The pole time for the Supersport race was set by Michael Dunlop at an average speed of 126.299 mph. In what was considered to be a highly contested race it was the unfortunate Michael Dunlop that was the first retirement on lap 1 at Snugbrough near the 2nd Milestone. Despite only setting fifth fastest in practice it was Bruce Anstey riding a 600 cc Suzuki that led at the official timing point at Glen Helen by 1.73 seconds from the 600 cc Honda of Guy Martin with Ian Hutchinson just 0.5 second behind in third place also riding a Honda motorcycle. A further gaggle of riders covered by five seconds included the Honda of John McGuinness in fourth place followed by the Kawasaki of Conor Cummins then Keith Amor with the 600 cc Yamaha of Ian Lougher in seventh place at Glen Helen on lap 1. The places were reversed at the Ramsey Hairpin on lap 1 with Guy Martin now leading Bruce Anstey by 0.3 seconds.

At the Ramsey Hairpin on lap 2, Bruce Anstey was now leading by 3.35 seconds and the New Zealander shattered the lap record with a lap of 17 minutes and 53.32 seconds an average speed of 126.549 mph and was now leading by 6.86 seconds.[11] After the pit-stops at the end of lap 2 it was Ian Hutchinson that moved into second place leading Guy Martin by 0.3 seconds in third place followed by the Honda riders of McGuinness, Keith Amor and Steve Plater. The pace continued by Bruce Anstey on the third lap with a slightly increased lead of 8.63 seconds and a lap with an average speed of 120.660 mph and increasing the lead to 10.55 seconds at the official timing point at Ballaugh Bridge on lap four.

This elevated Ian Hutchinson to first place and winning the 2009 Supersport Race 1 in 1 hour, 12 minutes and 56.58 seconds at an average race speed of 121.141 mph. The racing had been close and the winner Ian Hutchinson said;- "Bruce and I were touching fairings going into the Gooseneck. It was enjoyable but frustrating...."[11] In second place was Guy Martin completing the race with a blown head gasket and mentioned that;- "Conditions were nearly 100% but there wasn't the grip there was on Monday. We're chipping away at it. I'm just pleased to finish second. After having trouble with the bike on lap 2, I was looking for a decent pub to pull up at."[11] The third place went to the 600 cc Honda of Keith Amor after a previous third place in the 2008 Supersport Race 1 was handed to him after a technical enfridgment following the exclusion of Bruce Anstey motorcycle and Amor said with this in mind that;- "It's a nice feeling to be finally stepping up onto the podium, though it was hard work. At times we were almost touching, it was so close but I was determined to hang in for third."[14]

Superstock TT Race[edit]

Continuing with the amended race schedule on Tuesday 9 June 2009 the 4 lap (150.73 miles) Superstock TT, the fastest time in practice was set by Steve Plater with an average speed of 126.938 mph. It was the 1000 cc Honda of Keith Amor that held a 1 second lead over the Honda of John McGuinness and a further 1.3 seconds over Ian Hutchinson in third place at Glen Helen on lap 1. In fourth place was the 1000 cc Kawasaki of Conor Cummins followed by the Kawasaki of Ryan Farquhar and the 1000 cc Honda of Steve Plater in sixth place and only 0.82 seconds on corrected time covering the battle for fourth place.

At the official timing point at Ballaugh Bridge on lap 2, it was Ian Hutchinson's turn to leap-frog into second place then moving into the lead by 0.5 of a second from Guy Martin and Keith Amor in third place.

After winning two Isle of Man TT races in one day, Ian Hutchinson said;- " I can't believe it....I didn't feel I was on the pace to start with, but I got stuck in and had a much better second lap. We filled the tank right to the brim at the fuel stop and coundn't get the filler cap back in. I considered going off without it, but that would have been stupid."[16] In second place with an average race speed of 127.349 mph was the 1000 cc Honda of Guy Martin who commented;- "Fair play to Ian, there were a few back-markers in the way on the final lap, but he had to deal with them as well, 129 mph – thats going some."[17] The final podium place was filled by Keith Amor with an average race speed of 127.103 mph who commented on the race conditions after the delayed start as;- "It was like night-time racing, quite dark under the trees, but I cannot believe the speeds.".[18] The 2009 Superstock TT race provided a new women's lap record for the Snaefell Mountain Course with TT newcomer Jenny Tinmouth lapping in 19 minutes and 26.08 seconds an average speed of 116.483 mph on the last lap and beating the previous time of 19 minutes 43.8 seconds held by Maria Costello from the 2004 Production TT race.[15] The Japanese rider and TT newcomer Yoshinari Matsushita crashed at the Stonebreakers Hut on lap 3 of the Superstock TT race suffering multiple fractures to both legs and a shoulder injury.

Despite the mixed road conditions it was the 600 cc Yamaha of Michael Dunlop that was in the lead at Glen Helen by 3 seconds from the 600 cc Kawasaki of Ryan Farquhar on lap 1. This was followed by the 600 cc Kawasaki of Conor Cummins just 0.11 of a second down in third place, followed by the 600 cc Suzuki of Bruce Anstey and the 600 cc Yamaha of Ian Lougher in fifth place. At the Ramsey Hairpin on lap 1, Conor Cummins passed his fellow Kawasaki rider on corrected time, to lead Ryan Farquhar by 3 seconds, but still 11 seconds adrift of the leader Michael Dunlop. An indication of the mixed condition, Michael Dunlop completed lap 1 in 18 minutes and 54.33 seconds an average speed of 119.743 mph leading Conor Cummins by 10.12 seconds and the 600 cc Honda of Guy Martin that was 8.96 seconds adrift in third place.[20] Retirements at the TT Grandstand at the end of lap 1 included the 600 cc Yamaha of William Dunlop, the 600 cc Suzuki of Adrian Archibald and the 600 cc Honda of the 2005 Junior Manx Grand Prix winner Ian Pattinson.

On lap 2 at Ballaugh Bridge, Michael Dunlop had increased his lead to 14.76 seconds over Conor Cummims with Bruce Anstey now in third place. At the end of lap 2, Michael Dunlop had increased the lead to 15.4 seconds and lapped at an average speed of 122.692 mph as conditions on the course improved. The lead increased to 16.6 seconds for Michael Dunlop on lap 3 at Glen Helen with Conor Cummins ahead of the Suzuki of Bruce Anstey by 7.1 seconds and Guy Martin in fourth place. At the Bungalow on lap 3 the lead had increased to 18 seconds for Michael Dunlop completing the lap in 19 minutes 7.45 seconds an average speed of 118.373. As Conor Cummins crossed the finish-line at the end of lap 3 his 600 cc Kawasaki cut-out and he coasted the length of the pit-straight with a dead engine and the TT Grandstand speed-trap recording a speed of 98 mph.[20] Passing the pit-lane exit, the engine restarted and second place was lost to Bruce Anstey on corrected race-time. On the last lap, Michael Dunlop was now leading the Suzuki of Bruce Anstey by 26.48 seconds at Glen Helen and Conor Cummins had recovered from his engine mishap to be 7 seconds adrift of second place. At the Bungalow on lap 4, the lead had increased to 31 seconds for the 600 cc Yamaha of Michael Dunlop as Bruce Anstey in turn had to fight off a late challenge over the Mountain Section of the course by Conor Cummins the local Isle of Man rider.

The 2009 Supersport Race 2 was won by Michael Dunlop in 1 hour, 14 minutes and 34.80 seconds at an average race speed of 121.416 mph. In the mixed race conditions Michael Dunlop commented that;- "My dad gave me the knowledge. I went as quickly as I dared in the damp conditions later on. I had to go for it. It was my spare bike, my better one blew-up in the first couple of miles yesterday. This makes up for all the disappointment....I have been pretty relaxed apart from that. It's been like Paddy's on Tour."[21] The 2009 Supersport TT Race 2 was the second win on the Snaefell Mountain Course after Michael Dunlop had won the 2006 Newcomers Manx Grand Prix and was the 34th win for the Dunlop family over a period of 32 years. In second place was the New Zealander Bruce Anstey at an average race speed of 120.580 mph the margin just 0.71 seconds from the late challenge from Conor Cummins. Also, Bruce Anstey reflected about the mixed conditions and after three non-race finishes said;- "We finally got the gremlins sorted out and I was just glad to cross the finish line – the conditions were very wet and slippery early on but got drier as the race went on. Michael got the move on the first lap and there was no getting him back.[22] In third place was Conor Cummins at an average speed of 120.561 and said of the lap 3 problem;- "I'm really not sure what went wrong with the bike at the end of lap three but it seems OK now. I'm delighted with third but it would be nice to go two better.[9]

Sidecar TT Race 'B'[edit]

The weather delays to the running of the Supersport Race 2 that the 3 lap (113.00 miles) Sidercar Race 'B' was postponed to early evening. The leaders on the road and on corrected race time on lap 1 at Glen Helen were the 600 cc LCR Honda outfit of Nick Crowe/Mark Cox by 0.65 of a second from the 600 cc DMR Suzuki of Dave Molyneaux/Dan Sayle. On approaching Ballacobb near Ballaugh Bridge the Honda sidecar of Nick Crowe/Mark Cox crashed heavily and caught fire. The two crew were airflifted to Nobles Hospital by the Medical Helicopter with extensive injuries.[23] The Sidecar Race 'B' was red-flagged and the following sidecar competitors were stopped at various points of the course before Ballaugh Bridge. These sidecar crews were escorted back to the TT Grandstand in the reverse direction by the TT Travelling Marshals to restart the race and later a decision was made by the organisers to abandon the 2009 Sidecar TT Race 'B'. It is believed that the onboard camera on the outfit of Nick Crowe/Mark Cox shows a Brown Hare running in front of the sidecar immediately before the crash.[23]

TTXGP Race[edit]

TTXGP bikes in the paddock before their first practice session in the 2009 Isle of Man TT

The first race to be held on Senior Race day was TTXGP – (Time Trial Xtreme Grand Prix) for racing motorcycles "to be powered without the use of carbon based fuels and have zero toxic/noxious emissions."[1] The race for mainly two types of battery powered electric motorcycles for 1 lap (37.733 miles) of the Snaefell Mountain Course and the fastest time in practice was set Rob Barber in 26 minutes and 41.39 seconds an average speed of 84.819 mph in the 3a PRO Class.

The inaugural lap of the "Electric TT"[24] the race leader at the official timing point at Glen Helen on lap 1 was Rob Barber with a Team AGNI electric motorcycle and described by the Sports Editor of an Isle of Man Newspaper as;- "For all the world it sounded like a milk float without the chink of glass bottles....the UK-India alliance AGNI team machine, ridden by the fastest man in training Rob Barber, whirred its way to Glen Helen in six minutes, the kind of time perhaps expected from Artie Bell on his winning ride in the 1950 Junior."[25] In second place at Glen Helen was Thomas Schoenfelder and the XXL machine and 28 seconds down on the leaders time with James McBride and the Isle of Man based ManTTx Racing in the Open Class a further 9 seconds behind. A change in the leaderboard positions at Ballaugh Bridge as Rob Barber was now leading James McBride by 46 seconds and the XXL entry of Thomas Schoenfelder relegated to third position. The Kingston University entry ridden by George Spence was forced to stop at Crosby Crossroads to recharge the batteries at the Crosby Hotel. The official speed-trap on Sulby Straight recorded a speed of 106.50 mph for the XXL machine for Thomas Schoenfelder, a speed of 99 mph for James McBride in the Open class and 97.9 mph for the PRO Class AGNI bike of Rob Barber. The fast pace was too much for the Open Class entry of ManTTx Racing, and the bike stopped with an overheated electric motor at Glen Duff and a retirement for James McBride, a replacement for Dan Kneen after a crash at the Black Dub during the Supersport TT Race 2, which resulted in a broken ankle for the 2008 Manx Grand Prix winner. The leader in TTXGP reached Ramsey Hairpin in 15 minutes and 56 seconds an average speed of 87 mph and Rob Barber maintained a lead over Thomas Schoenfelder with the American rider Thomas Montano over 2 minutes off the pace of the leaders.

The winner of the 2009 TTXGP was the AGNI entry of Rob Barber in 25 minutes and 53.50 seconds an average race speed of 87.434 mph. After lapping at 112 mph in the Supersport TT race 2, Rob Barber was pleased to be the inaugural winner of the TTXGP and said; "It is the best experience of my life....The volt meter is running quite low as the battery started to run out in the final few miles, but I have the win and the record lap, which I wanted – Fantastic."[25] The winning Anglo-Indian AGNI PRO class entry was based on a 600 cc Suzuki GSX frame and incorporating the Cedric Lynch designed axial gap brushed DC Lynch motor.[24] The second place in the PRO class was the XXL entry of Thomas Schoenfelder in 29 minutes and 4.93 seconds an average race speed of 77.841 mph. The XXL machine was based on 650 cc Laverda using a 120 hp Siemens motor and an electric regulator from an Audi hybrid car.[24] The third place finisher was Mark Buckley with the Brammo/BIKE entry on the 3a PRO class in 30 minutes and 2.64 seconds at an average race speed of 75.350 mph. The Brammo entries based in Oregon, USA and Mark Buckley said that; " Every time I ride this bike it just gets better. It just like a GP 250."[24] The Open class winner was Chris Heath with the Electric Motorsport entry in 34 minutes and 17.30 at an average race speed of 66.022 mph. In second place was Chris Petty at an average race speed of 62.219 mph and third place with the TORK entry was John Crellin at an average race speed of 60.475 mph. There was confusion at the end of the Open class as the winner Chris Heath was briefly excluded and then reinstated after the rider was unaware of a TTXGP regulation that competitors must sound the machines' electric horn if a yellow flag is displayed by a race marshal. After discussion with ACU stewards and the TTXGP organisers, Chris Heath was reinstated as winner of the Open class.[25]

Isle of Man Senior TT Race[edit]

The Blue Riband event of TT Race week was the Senior TT race over 6 lap (226.38 miles) of the Snaefell Mountain Course held on Friday 12 June 2009. The pole time for the Senior TT race was set on Thursday evening practice by the Australian Cameron Donald in 17 minutes, 13.25 seconds an average speed of 131.457 mph riding a 1000 cc Suzuki motorcycle. A non-qualifier for the Senior TT was the official Norton Motorcycle Company and a single entry Wankel-engined 588 cc NRV motorcycle ridden during practice by Michael Dunlop.

After a 30 minutes delay due to a light rain shower, the leader of the 2009 Senior TT on lap 1 at the official timing point at Glen Helen was the 1000 cc Honda of John McGuinness by 2.42 seconds from Steve Plater and the 1000 cc Kawasaki of Conor Cummins down by 1.75 seconds on the two Honda team-mates. The 1000 cc Honda of Ian Hutchinson was 3.8 seconds behind in 4th place, followed by the 1000 cc Suzuki of Bruce Anstey, the 1000 cc Honda of Gary Johnson and Guy Martin in seventh place. The Honda of McGuinness completed lap 1 in 17 minutes and 17.23 seconds an average speed of 130.953 mph from a standing race start to lead Steve Plater at the TT Grandstand by 3.68 seconds. An early retirement was the 1000 cc Kawasaki of Ryan Farquhar explaining that;- "There is no high-speed stability."[26] The lead was extended by John McGuinness on lap 2 to 10 seconds at the Ramsey Hairpin and Steve Plater held a 5.8 second margin over Conor Cummins in third place. The second lap was completed by John McGuinness in 17 minutes and 12.30 seconds at an average speed of 131.578 mph and McGuinness was on course to complete his fifth straight Senior TT win. The New Zealander Bruce Anstey retired his Suzuki at the 33rd Milestone and Ian Lougher retired his 1000 cc Yamaha with handling problems. At Glen Helen on lap 3, the Honda of John McGuinness was leading his team-mate by 18.5 seconds with Conor Cummins holding third place. On the same lap while exiting Parliament Square, Ramsey the chain on the 1000 cc Honda of John McGuinness snapped and he coasted to a halt at Cruickshanks Corner. This dramatically handed the lead to Steve Plater with an 11 second lead over Conor Cummins at Ramsey Hairpin on lap 3 with the 1000 cc Honda of Guy Martin moving into third place. At the end of lap 4, Conor Cummins posted his first 130 mph lap in 17 minutes and 23.02 seconds an average speed of 130.225 mph. Further drama in the pit-lane at the TT Grandstand at the end of lap 4 with Guy Martin in third place pulling-out of his pit the chain on his 1000 cc Honda also snapped forcing him into retirement. The 1000 cc Honda of Keith Amor was another retirement with a jammed rear-wheel spindle which would not allow the rear-tyre to be changed.

The lead on lap 5 was extended by Steve Plater to 15.6 seconds at the Ramsey Hairpin over Conor Cummims with 29.2 seconds separated Ian Hutchinson in third place. A crash near the Alexander Road Junction with the Quarterbridge Road for the 1000 cc Suzuki of the American competitor Mark Miller and he slid downhill with his machine all the way to the Quarterbridge. This left oil on the racing line from the damaged motorcycle and despite the efforts of the race marshals the 1000 cc Yamaha of William Dunlop slid-off at the same place. This was followed by Ian Hutchinson crashing-out of third place of the Senior TT on the same oil at the Quarterbridge and also losing his lead in the Joey Dunlop TT Championship. This moved the 1000 cc Honda of Gary Johnson into third place on the last lap of the Senior TT Race. The winner of the 2009 Isle of Man TT Race was Steve Plater in 1 hour, 45 minutes and 53.15 seconds at an average race speed of 128.278 mph. Also winning the prestigious Isle of Man TT Championship, Steve Plater said that;- "This means a massive amount to me. It probably won't sink in until I manage to get some time to myself but I don't know were to go from here."[26] In second place was the Isle of Man competitor Conor Cummins at an average race speed of 127.884 mph and was the best result for a local competitor in the Senior TT since Tom Sheard won the 1923 race. Describing the race, Conor Cummins said that; "I rode with all my heart today....I remember watching the TT as a lad from the end of the road near Milntown, but I never in a million years did I think I would get two podium finishes in one week."[26] The third place finisher was Gary Johnson at an average race speed of 126.875 mph and included a 10 second stop-box penalty at the pit stop at the end of lap 2. Delighted with his first podium place Gary Johnson said; "It has been a difficult week for us, but the team pulled together to enable me to pull this result out of the bag. I have served my three-year apprenticeship. The TT is an endurance race and you've got to be on it on the last lap to get a result."[26] It is later announced by race organisers that John Crellin fatally crashed at the 27th Milestone on the Mountain Mile on lap 5 of the 2009 Senior TT Race.[27] A local Isle of Man motorcycle competitor and experienced mountaineer, John Crellin had finished in third place in the Open Class for the 2009 TTXGP earlier in the same day.[28] The newly formed manufacturers award was won by Honda. Fittingly in their 50th Racing year.
