William Dunlop has qualified fastest for next week's two Supersport races at the Isle of Man TT.

The 26-year-old topped the overall practice leaderboard for the class on 126.18mph, with younger brother Michael second at 124.52.

Dungannon's Ryan Farquhar led the Supertwins with a speed of 115.39.

Morecambe's John McGuinness, 17 times a TT winner, was best Superbike of the week on 130.08 with James Hillier the leading Superstock on 127.81.

Friday night's final session produced little change in the leaderboards and was halted prematurely because of oil on the track at the Barregarrow section of the course.
