Default Bruce anstey . Lap record . Isle of man

Thought someone may have already posted a vid but can't seem to find one here so here we go.

A great result for HONDA and best of all a ***** on the line KIWI rider,

Bruce ALMIGHTY Anstey takes his Blade to its peak to claim fastest lap EVER around the worlds greatest street race.
I must point out there's a few errors he made along the way but he still kicks ***. Iron out those few errors and keep the pace for 6 laps and Michael Dunlop might just get bumped off the 1st place spot regardless of his supercharged BMW.

Well Done Honda well done Bruce
Enjoy the onboard vid and don't forget to breath....

I can't believe he was held up by a back marker and missed 2 corners and STILL made 132. He could have easily had a 133 mph lap because it would have been another 2.5-3 seconds.


Great vid! Great post!


Oh - and I should add - along with your "don't forget to breath" - for all that is worthwhile, GO FULLSCREEN

T'was quite amazing to watch Bruce pile it on like that - Dunlop will need to watch out !

Watchin' the Sidecars right now DVR'd from earlier which is always entertaining


I've just run Bruce Almighty's run twice now on the big screen - it's just phenomenal
I'm thinking if his run out at Craig Na Baa and one or two other ditch lickers were
tighter he'd have nailed mid 133's - Jeeez did he make that Padgetts Honda dance

One word

WOW

Next installment coming up on velocity right now - Supersport class I believe

If you haven't seen it already Sprock, check our the Birchall boys wee crash. Short n sweet Aka over in seconds. Those swingers would have to be brave guys to hang there heads out like that around those corners.
Shame they haven't been getting much track time. They're great fun to watch.

Seen it Kiwi - quite the crash with them getting flung backwards into the ditch. Those
teams have huge ones hanging sideways off at those speeds.

Looking forward to this SuperSport race(s) , they'll be close I reckon

I couldn't believe how they showed the driver (Birchall) looking back. These guys are on another level. It's true what they say "After a week of practice, everything is slow-motion in their eyes".

Haha you the man SB thanks for that
I saw a vid where a rider was talking you through the track with his onboard and yep Conrice your correct, he was saying he uses focus points, ie a hedge there, a certain type of wall there etc etc and anything in between was not there so to speak so you end up in an almost slow motion tunnel vision. If that's what he can do at 190MPH through those small villages then it don't care who you are that's frekin talent

Gotta subscribe and watch at home, a 4" phone screen doesn't quite do justice to this stuff...
