IOMTT Press Release:

The packed grandstand was bathed in the early evening sunshine as the Morecambe man was first away, alongside John Barton, but he only got as far as Quarterbridge before retiring. McGuinness had already missed the previous evening's session with a reported electrical problem.

John McGuinness' problems with the Team Winfield Paton continued in tonight's 500cc qualifying session for the 2013 Classic TT Races.

Other retirements on the opening lap of the session included Michael Dunlop, riding the MD Racing Norton, while Mark Parrett and James Hillier both pulled in at Crosby Village.
