Hutchy takes five in a week, Martin has a fire­ball and Brits shine at Sil­ver­stone Mo­togp

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

We’ll look back at June 2010 as a clas­sic pe­riod for bike rac­ing. The TT was set on fire by Ian Hutchin­son’s five wins in a week and of course Guy Martin’s ex­plo­sive crash in the Se­nior TT. At the same time, there was a bumper crowd for the first Mo­togp race at Sil­ver­stone with 70,000 pun­ters at­tend­ing over the three days.

It was a great time for rid­ing too – a high-pres­sure area was fixed over main­land Bri­tain, mean­ing the end of June was a mini heat­wave. The high­est tem­per­a­ture was 30.9°C, recorded in Gravesend in Kent. It would have made track­days at Brands Hatch heaven…

Jorge Lorenzo took con­trol in Mo­togp, tak­ing the ti­tle by a whop­ping 138 points.
