A first-race-of-the-festival thriller here on the island in perfect weather conditions and glorious sunshine. Dunlop led the race from the start on corrected time and was pulling out a handful of seconds over second-placed Ian Hutchinson for the first three laps although Hutchy regained some of them in laps five and six.

However the top three retained their positions throughout the race and Peter Hickman took 4th place at the end of lap five from Dean Harrison. Bruce Anstey had a relatively slow start dropping to 11th position but recovered several places to finish his race in 8th place on the MotoGP-derived Honda RCV213, the V4-engined machine.
