Gary Johnson's MV Agusta failed to fire but the Lincs Lifting rider valiantly pushed off the line to St Ninians and got the Italian machine going on Bray Hill but Conor Cummins was an early retiree, reported as pulling in on the approach to Appledene.

Linsdell's lead was almost 8 seconds by Glen Helen and the Bedfordshire man completed his first lap in a time of 111.446, beating Ryan Farquhar's lap record of 110.984 set in the 2010 Manx Grand Prix meeting.
