The Southern 100’s second session was again hit by more rain and delays on Tuesday.

The evening’s schedule had already been reduced to one race, the seven-lap Corlett’s Trophies Senior Solo Founders 600/1000, because of a curtailed practice session the previous night.

However, this was red flagged on the second lap after Billown newcomer Dan Hegarty had a spill.

The Nottingham rider was initially taken to Noble’s by Airmed, where he was detained overnight for observation. He is expected to be released later today.

Although the session continued after with a practice session for 125/400s the race wasn’t restarted.

Organisers have adjusted the programme for Wednesday evening. Immediately after the road closure at 6.05pm, there will be a two-lap sidecar qualifying session.

Once this has been completed, the scheduled race programme in the official race guide will be run, with the race time amended accordingly to accommodate the sidecar laps.

Providing there is sufficient time at the conclusion of Wednesday’s race programme, The Station Garage 125/400/450cc race, which was originally scheduled for Tuesday will be run.

Announcements regarding Championship Day, Thursday, July 9, will be made at the conclusion of Wednesday’s programme.
