MOLYNEUX AND HALLAM TO MISS ISLE OF MAN TT

HM Plant Honda sidecar riders Dave Molyneux and Craig Hallam will miss the 2006 Isle of Man TT after crashing out, at Rhencullen, in yesterday’s (1 June) practice session.

Isle of Man-based Molyneux sustained a dislocated shoulder and a cut to his leg while Hallamsustained friction burns.

It is a disappointing end to the pairing’s week-long practice; they demonstrated consistent strong form and set the early pace around the famous 37.73-mile course; Molyneux beat – unofficially – the current lap record of 116.04mph in Tuesday’s practice session, with an average speed of 116.224mph.

Neil Tuxworth: “Obviously, it’s a great shame that Dave and Craig are unable to compete, not only for HM Plant Honda but for all the fans. They were showing some blistering form and looked set to lead the way. We are however, grateful that both riders are ok and we wish them a speedy recovery.”
