The first qualifying session for the 2016 Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy takes place this evening. The solo and sidecar newcomers will be out first onto the TT Mountain Course for their speed-controlled lap, which is scheduled to get underway at 6.20pm (GMT).

That is followed by a session for the Monster Energy Supersport and Bennetts Lightweight classes, which will also include solo newcomers.

All of the leading riders will be on the course for the 600cc session, although the 1000cc Superstock and Superbike machines will get their first outing on Monday evening.

John McGuinness raised the bar last year when he won the PokerStars Senior Race on a Honda Superbike, which included a lap record of 17m 03.567secs, at an average speed of 132.701mph. The 23 TT race winner thinks he can go even faster this year.
