The Miracle Man’s TT 2017 CRASH

Conditions were near-perfect for the PokerStars Senior TT and what a spectacle it became with Peter Hickman and Ian Hutchinson swapping the lead on several occasions over the first 60 miles of the race.

A standing start lap of 131.828mph had given Hickman a 1.7 second lead over Hutchinson, with Dean Harrison a close third. Hutchy had grabbed the lead back at Glen Helen, even though Harrison had produced the faster sector time on the nine-mile stretch from Douglas.

Hutchinson was still leading at Ballaugh, but Hickman was back in front by 0.184s at Ramsey Hairpin, with Harrison another second down in third. But Hutchinson failed to make the Bungalow and minutes later a red flag situation was implemented across the course – Hutchy came off at the 27th miletone

As the Bruce Anstey came into the pit lane, however, red flags were shown on Glencrutchery road. It was initally unclear who was involved in the incident, but Tyco BMW team have posted on social media, confirming it was Hutchinson involved however conscious, and on his way to Nobles Hospital by helicopter with suspected leg injuries, later confirmed as a broken femur.
