    As promised-

    It was another very quick TT practice tonight, although a crash in the sidecar session brought the night to an early end.The first bikes got away from the Grandstand at 6.30pm after a short delay to allow marshals delayed by today's road closures to get to their sectors.Like last night, conditions were warm, sunny and dry.The Superbike and Superstock machines were out first.John McGuinness again clocked the fastest Superbike time of the night, 129.4mph, over 1mph quicker than Monday night.Cameron Donald also topped 129mph.On the Superstocks Bruce Anstey set the fastest lap of the week so far, averaging just over 126mph.Conor Cummins, in his first practice of TT 2012, got in a couple of good laps on his Superstock, lapping at over 121mph to put him in the top 10.Next it was the turn of the Supersport and Supertwin machines.William Dunlop was again the man to beat on the Supersports, lapping at 124.77mph, which was just a shade quicker than his brother Michael.Ryan Farquhar clocked 115.39mph to top the Supertwins.

    Last night was the first 130mph lap of TT 2012 was seen , which was cut short by mist.
    And it was the current absolute lap record holder, John McGuinness, who logged it.
    He did it on his second lap out on his Superbike.
    When the Morecambe Missile came in, he told Chris Kinley he wasn't completely satisfied though: (play audio)
    William Dunlop had another storming outing on his Supersport bike, recording the fastest lap in the class for the third night in a row - 126.4mph

    It was a somewhat subdued TT practice session tonight, save for a storming lap by Dave Molyneux and Patrick Farrance.
    They now top the sidecar qualifying leaderboard after lapping at 113.538mph.
    No new benchmarks were set in the solos, although Conor Cummins did log his fastest Superbike lap of the week - 124.9mph - despite the gloomy and slightly damp conditions.

    There were a couple of incidents.
    Sidecar passenger Leon Fitzpatrick was air-medded to Noble's Hospital with minor injuries after he and Dean Lindley crashed at Kirk Michael.
    Then the Supersport / Supertwin session was red flagged after newcomer Stefan Holtz came off at Sarah's Cottage and injured his right arm.
    An ambulance took him to Lambfell, from where the air ambulance transferred him to Noble's.

    For the first few nights the TT on ITV 4 has had better viewing figures than the tennis.

    For your latest update-
    Bruce Anstey has snatched victory in the Supersport 1 race by just 0.77 seconds.The Kiwi managed to hold off Cameron Donald to take his ninth victory around the Mountain Course.
    William Dunlop finished third, his first podium at the TT.Earlier in the race William's younger brother Michael dominated, opening up a 20-second lead by the end of lap two and recording a new lap record in the process.But mechanical problems forced him to retire at Ballig Bridge.

    The four-lap Superstock race will get underway at 6.30pm tonight.
