Bruce Anstey won his second-straight TT Zero electric race at the Isle of Man TT, finishing the single-lap challenge with a time of 19:19.924, averaging a speed of 117.710 mph. Though the winning time was slower than last year – let alone John McGuinness‘ record lap of 18:58.743 set in 2013 – this year’s TT Zero was notable for having all eight starters completing a full lap for the first time.

Riding the Mugen Shinden Roku, Anstey led from start to finish. Anstey held a 10.747 second advantage of Mugen teammate Guy Martin at Glen Helen, with University of Nottingham rider Daley Mathison, a podium finisher last year, another 14.6 seconds back in third.

The gap spread to 18 seconds despite Martin clocking a speed of 162.9 mph (compared to 162.1 mph for Anstey) through Sulby Straight, the fastest area of the course; Martin’s recorded speed was faster than any competitors in the 650cc Lightweight TT race earlier in the week.

Anstey was uncatchable, crossing the finish the finish line 41.407 seconds quicker than Martin. Mathison finished third, averaging a speed of 109.209 mph. Dean Harrison, riding for Sarolea, was fourth, also posting an average speed over 100 mph.
