Michael Dunlop will have to wait until Sunday for the RST Superbike race as part of a major race reshuffle by the Isle of Man TT organisers.

A revamped race schedule was confirmed on Thursday by the Isle of Man TT organisers, with the RST Superbike race now moved to Sunday.

Thursday’s practice was called off due to heavy rain and has been moved to Friday evening.

On Saturday, additional practice will be held, with the RST Superbike race now pencilled in for 2pm on Sunday followed by further practice sessions.

The Superbike race was previously held on a Sunday in 2013, when Michael Dunlop emerged victorious on the Honda Legends Fireblade.

Monday’s programme has also been affected but the first Supersport race will go ahead in the morning followed by the opening Sidecar race, which has been moved from Saturday. The Superstock race now switches to Tuesday and the schedule from Wednesday remains unaltered.
