Kiwi, Bruce Anstey on the Padgett/Valvoline YZR500 wins the IoM Classic TT F1 class leaving all the other 750cc four strokes in his wake.

In the process sets a new lap record for the class.  :up:

Lap record at 123.894 mph. :up:

 

What is the 250cc lap record, John McGuiness in 1999 but I can't find the speed?

 

The TT database is useless for anything but race times and positions or current lap records. :confused:

Yes , what a great occasion yesterday was , here in the IOM , 2 races in the same day won by proper race bikes .....the 350 won by the MV ... a repro , yes , but still a proper race bike , then Bruce's magnificent ride to win the Classic , against the Suzuki alleged cheats .......not in the spirit , IMHO , but the first time for many years proper race bikes have won  :clap:   :up:

I'm sat here 200 yards from Bray Hill , can hear the modified road bikes out in the Junior , but just can't be arsed to walk to the end of the road to watch  :well: , sad state of affairs , or is it  :confused: . The Lightweight lap and race records held by Richard Quayle from 1999 at 112.71 and 114 .80 , 250 Honda  :wave:

Good stuff Philth, listening on the net here and enjoyed the sounds if not the clueless commentary of the Classic Lap yesterday as well. Anstey seems to get quicker and smoother the more he gets laid-back and older...

Don't really blame you for not strolling down the corner to watch the clone bikes...

I was actually referring to the TT 250 lap record by McGuinless in 1999. Lougher did over 117 in 1990 on an 'A' which I believe was the same one he rode for Brian yesterday.

 

Lougher had done 122.93 in 1999 on a V twin NSR Honda 500.

 

I am listening to the 'supertwins' race mostly those ghastly Kawasaki with a sprinkling of  TZs and RSs with the 'lightweights' being Honda 400s with again a sprinkling of 125 RSs and Beerat on a TZ125.

Phil, hope you're getting well soon! No, I'm not on the Isle, me poor sod is sitting in front of my computer here in good old Germany following the event on Manx Radio and the livestream.

It is in the database toneyed, although I concede entirely that it is not the easiest to navigate. It's 19.18.20, 118.29mph or 190.37kph in French. :lol:
