Bike India - - SPORT -

of the TT week saw Guy Martin back on the grid, rid­ing the Mu­gen ma­chine for team Mu­gen Shin­den. How­ever, it was his team­mate and last year’s win­ner, Bruce An­stey, who thrilled ev­ery­one in this one-lap race.

An­stey got a bril­liant start as the Kiwi rider es­tab­lished a solid 10-sec­ond lead at Glen He­len over team-mate Guy Martin. Da­ley Mathi­son, who was rid­ing for the Univer­sity of Not­ting­ham team, was run­ning third.

An­stey kept widen­ing the gap be­tween him and Martin and, at Bal­laugh, he was 18 sec­onds ahead of Martin. At Ram­sey, An­stey’s lead had stretched to al­most 30 sec­onds over Martin. Mean­while, Da­ley main­tained a con­stant third place as the race en­tered the fi­nal stages.

Af­ter go­ing through the moun­tain sec­tion with a size­able lead, there was no stop­ping for An­stey as the Kiwi took the che­quered flag, win­ning this year’s TT Zero by a mar­gin of over 30 sec­onds. Martin fin­ished a com­mend­able sec­ond and Da­ley came home in third.

A note­wor­thy as­pect of the TT Zero was that all the eight par­tic­i­pants were able to fin­ish the race.

The Kiwi took vic­tory in the elec­tric class, his 12th TT win
