120mph – No problem
Ian Mackman got his TT 2010 off to a blistering start in Monday’s first timed practice session. Considering that the newly built, just last week, Suzuki GSXR 1000 was still in pieces a few days ago it was an astonishing performance as Ian turned in a average lap speed of 119.94 mph for his first look at the Mountain Circuit this year.
The second circuit saw Ian go even quicker as he broke the 120mph barrier but the best was to come as he completed his third lap in 18mins 45.6 secs at a speed of 120.672 mph.
A good night’s work.
Practice continues tomorrow evening.
