Michael Dunlop won a shortened PokerStars Senior TT race at the 2017 Isle of Man TT races, fuelled by Monster Energy on Friday evening with the Bennetts Suzuki rider taking his 15th TT victory by 13.3s from Peter Hickman (Smiths Racing BMW) and Dean Harrison (Silicone Engineering Kawasaki).

The race was restarted over four laps after the original race was red flagged on the second lap due to an incident involving 16-time TT winner Ian Hutchinson at the 27th milestone. The Tyco BMW rider was conscious but was taken to hospital by air where it was later confirmed that he had suffered a fractured femur.

Hickman made it five podiums from five starts with Harrison repeating his third place finish from Sunday’s RST Superbike race, aided by his first ever 132mph lap on lap four. Hillier and Rutter ended their strong weeks in fourth and fifth, the gap between the duo just 0.64s at the checkered flag.

Ben and Tom Birchall won the second Sure Formula Two Sidecar race at the 2017 Isle of Man TT Races on Friday afternoon, taking victory by 26.5s from John Holden/Lee Cain in a repeat result of the opening race on Monday.

The Birchalls hit the front for the first time on the run from Glen Helen to Ballaugh on lap one and were never challenged again as they took their sixth TT victory.

Bruce Anstey retained his SES TT Zero title with his victory in the 2017 Isle of Man TT Races.
