The Isle of Man TT organisers have released a revised schedule in the latest attempt to conclude the weather-hit festival of racing.

It was announced on Tuesday morning that the day's action had been wiped out by mist and rain with the week's first Superstock race put back.

Pans are now in place for the four-lap Superstock outing to headline a double-bill of action on Thursday at 12.15pm. It will be followed by the Zero TT at 3pm, having been moved from its original Wednesday spot.

The Wednesday action will now be headlined by the 10.45am four-lap Supersport race, which will be followed by Sidecar qualifying (12.40pm) and a Lightweight race at 2.15pm. Qualifying sessions for Sidecar, Zero TT and Superbikes will make up the remainder of the day.

Friday's schedule is as yet untouched with the second Sidecar race providing the starter to the main event of the prestigious Isle of Man TT race, in which Peter Hickman will be looking to complete a Superbike double after his win in Monday's shortened opener.

On Wednesday, it's Lee Johnston that is aiming to do the double in the Supersport category, adding to his Monday win.

The meeting, of course, has already been overshadowed by the death of English rider Daley Mathison, who was killed in an accident in Monday's opening  Superbike race at the TT.
