Injured Ryan Farquhar had a surprise maiden victory in the Production
The closest race of the week only 2.3 seconds separated the Macadoo Kawasaki rider and Bruce Anstey's TAS Suzuki at the flag.
The Senior TT was anything but a predicted copy of Saturdays Formula 1.
Mcguiness had a blistering opening 2 laps to lead by 21 seconds from Archibald with Lougher only 1.2 seconds adrift in third, it looked as though John would become only the second ever rider (Phil Mcallen 1997) to score 4 wins in a week.
Then disaster struck with only a lap and a half to go when John had to park up the R1 Yamaha at Kirk Michael with a broken clutch.
This left Archibald to take a second consecutive Senior TT with Bruce Anstey second and a jubilant Gary Carswell third.
More changes are planned by the Manx Motor Cycle club for TT 2005, we can at least look forward to six lap Super Bike TT's again, but its a sad farewell to 125 /400's and hello 600 SuperStocks.
Looks promising, see you there then!
