Conor Cummins fought off Michael Rutter during second qualifying for the Macau Grand Prix, to register a time of 2:26.58 seconds, pushing Rutter back to second place. This timestamp sets a new lap record, and puts Conor into pole position for the race. It was expected that Michael would take the lap record, but the fighting Manxman, on his second visit to Macau, had other ideas.

It’s looking like Conor will be the man to beat, and for Michael he could be the thorn in the side that Steve Plater had been in previous years, denying Michael that record breaking seventh win.

Top ten riders after second qualifying:
1 Conor Cummins, 2:26.580
2 Michael Rutter
3 Cameron Donald
4 John McGuinness
5 Ian Hutchinson
6 Stuart Easton
7 Jeremy Toye
8 Mark Miller
9 Luis Carreira
10 Stephen Thompson
