STATEMENT ISSUED BY ACU EVENTS LTD

ISLE OF MAN TT RACES - SUPERSPORT RACE 1 POST RACE DISQUALIFICATIONS

ACU Events Ltd can confirm that two competitors have been disqualified from today’s Supersport Race 1 at the Isle of Man TT Races.

Michael Dunlop has been excluded from the results for a technical infringement identified during post race examination.  

ACU Events Ltd do not believe that there was a deliberate attempt to gain an unfair advantage and no significant performance advantage was gained.

As a result of this disqualification, Dean Harrison moves up to second place with James Hillier now taking the final podium position. 

In addition Rob Hodson, who finished 14th in the same race, has also been disqualified from the race having been found to have been running a significantly oversized engine.

Statement from PRF Engineering:

"PRF racing would like to issue the following statement in response to yesterday's disqualification from the super sport 1 race.

PRF racing would like to apologise to everyone concerned for unknowingly fielding an illegal engine in yesterday super sport 1 race. PRF bought a replacement 600cc engine in good faith due to multiple engine failures in qualification last week. We categorically place on record that we never have and never would knowingly field an illegal engine under any circumstances which has been proven in past history by having many engines striped and inspected.

Furthermore we would like to also pass on our sincere apologies to Rob Hodson who rode a great race yesterday and was unaware as we where that the engine in his super sport machine did not comply to super sport 600 regulations."
