Michael Rutter on
the Motoczysz again pipped the fast starting Mugen Shinden of John Mcguinness
by just 1.6 seconds to win the TT Zero race, just a whisker of the 110mph
James Hillier, the man who wears sticks of dynamite on the backside of his leathers, blew the Supertwins Lap record to smithereens on every lap on his way to his 1st TT win.
Dean Harrison finished 30 seconds back with local star Conor Cummins taking third, a deserved first podium since his horror crash of 2010.
The Senior TT, the
most historic race of the week, to the winner his name on the The Marquis
de Mouzilly St. Mars trophy joining the TT immortals from yesteryear.
Many had written off Mcguinness, five races and no wins while his new team mate Michael Dunlop was on a roll having won four out of four races, just one away from equaling Ian Hutchinson's five wins in a week.
After the restarted
race got underway the pace was red hot with seven seconds covering the
first five riders, all lapping at over 130mph from a standing start, Dunlop,
Gary Johnson, Mcguinness, Michael Rutter and Guy Martin.
At the pitstops Mcguinness and Dunlop were separated by only a few seconds opening a gap on third placed Bruce Anstey.
Lap four saw McPint
again go over 131mph to lead on the road and Dunlop by seven seconds,
James Hillier clung onto his tail for a TT masterclass also lapping at
over 131mph moving the Kawasaki rider up to fourth.
There was not to be any records on the last lap as John controlled the 10 second gap on Dunlop to take his 20th win with Anstey edging out Hillier for third place, both completing they're fastest ever TT laps.
So as the sun set on a glorious week of close TT racing, lap or race records broken in every solo class, John Mcguinness, for another year at least, could still be crowned " The King of Mountain. "
