John McGuinness smashes 130mph in 2009 TT practice
John McGuinness has once again stamped his authority on the 2009 Isle of Man TT with a breathtaking performance in the fourth practice session.

In bright sunshine, under blue skies and with a slight breeze, the 14-times TT winner blew away the rest of the field with a staggering ride on the HM Plant Honda superbike.

On his second lap of the evening the Morecambe star recorded an average lap speed of 130.171mph – only just slower than his outright lap record of 2007, which stands at 130.354mph.

Fans watching the progress with the TT Live! subscription service saw McGuinness hook up a perfect lap, reaching Ballaugh Bridge at an average speed of 139.318mph, blasting through the speed trap in Sulby at 191.2mph and getting to Ramsey Hairpin in under 10m 50s – at a staggering average speed of 142.473mph!
Behind McGuinness, Guy Martin was having another solid evening on the Hydrex Honda superbike, achieving 188.5mph at the speed trap on his opening circuit and blasting through 129mph on his second, with an average speed of 129.168mph.

Steve Plater, teammate to McGuinness at HM Plant, had a much improved session, his best superbike lap hitting 128.453mph and taking second fastest through the speed trap, with a 189.6mph.

After setting the fastest supersport time of the night on his Yamaha R6, at 125.085mph, Michael Dunlop was back out on the Norton, but only reached Braddan Bridge before further gremlins struck.

There were some class performances in the superstocks, with Adrian Archibald putting in two storming laps on the AMA Suzuki and Plater having a quick go before swapping back onto the superbike.

However honours in this class in the fourth practice session when to Ian Hutchinson, who lapped on his Honda at 126.849mph, and Keith Amor, who was fastest at the speed trap at 182.4mph on his way to second fastest superstock time of the night.

With 13-times TT winner Dave Molyneux taking the evening off after a superb opening to practice week, the way was open for fellow Manxman Nick Crowe and passenger Mark to dominate the session, and dominate they did – lapping at 113.849mph first time out and at a amazing 116.063mph on lap two!

John Holden and Andy Winkle set the second fastest time, but took the honour for fastest at the Sulby speed trap – 144.9mph.

Tim Reeves and Patrick Farrance were hoping for a change in fortunes for the fourth practice, and it seems they got their way – finishing two laps, both att more than 111mph.

The crews of Phil Dongworth/Gary Partridge and Simon Neary/Stuart Bond both managed laps at average speeds of more than 110mph.

The fifth practice session is scheduled for 6.20pm on Thursday.

Cameron Donald hits 131.457mph at 2009 TT!
After days of domination by 14-times TT winner, a new name tops the timesheets for fastest lap in practice for the 2009 Isle of Man TT.

And what a way to move to the head of the standings with an unofficial lap record and the first ever circuit of the legendary Mountain course at an average speed of more than 131mph!

TAS Suzuki’s Cameron Donald, on his four lap in the fifth practice session, hooked up a perfect lap to cross the line in 17m 13.25secs, an average speed of 131.457mph.

Fans watching this incredible feat unfolding on the TT Live! Subscription service saw the Australian complete the run to Ballaugh Bridge at an average of 140.428mph, after roaring through the Sulby speed trap at 188mph – more than 4mph slower than the night’s fastest speed, set by Guy Martin, Donald upped his pace to raise his average to 143.897mph. even at the Bungalow his speed was only 0.024 off 140mph!

Initially it was Hydrex Honda’s Martin who had the led the way in the Superbike class, only to be outdone by TAS Suzuki Bruce Anstey.

The Kiwi’s 130.129mph average on lap two, only slightly slower then the benchmark set by McGuinness on Wednesday, had looked good enough for him to finish the evening on top – until his teammate blitzed the Mountain course.

Donald’s awesome performance overshadowed some stunning superbike runs from others, including a notable 129.027mph from Honda-mounted Ian Hutchinson, a 128.982mph from HM Plant Honda’s Steve Plater and a fantastic 128.334mph from Manxman Conor Cummins.

McGuinness, who has been dominating the headlines during practice week suffered mechanical issues with his HM Plant Honda superbike and was unable to fight for a place at the top of the leaderboard.

While Donald’s sensational Superbike pace caught everyone’s attention, no one should overlook the equally impressive efforts of Michael Dunlop, who took his year-old Yamaha R6 supersport machine around at a staggering 126.299mph, a record time, albeit unofficial.

Hutchinson was his nearest rival, but was some 10 seconds down on Dunlop’s magnificent speed.

The TT Live! Data shows Dunlop maintained an average speed in excess of 130mph in all but the final section from Cronk ny Mona to the Grandstand, actually averaging more than 138.5mph between the start and Ramsey Hairpin.

There was some consolation for Martin as he topped the superstock times, with a 126.054mph.

Only a handful of sidecars got away from the Grandstand before the session was halted because of a major oil spill on the circuit.

onboard lap with comentary by Guy Martin. This guy talks as fast as he rides. funny listening to some of the markers he uses. I read where that Mcguiness doesn;t let onboard cameras on his bike let alone talk you through a lap. So these are a good look at the pace. The lap timer in the bottom of screen shows 17:25 when he comes into the pits at the end. On a 37.7 mile course 17.4 mins around makes for a 130 mph avg. If you watch the all of both vids you can see where he mentions letting up or running wide. He mentions getting 2 laps on fuel and tires before pitting so if 2 laps is all you get then you never get a flying lap, your either coming out from pit or heading in. I could never understand how they could set records from a standing start on the opening lap until I just thought about it this way.

the bit of head shake in the first vid at the 0:37 mark reminded me of this classic repost. I'm pretty sure its the same turn too. amazing to think just how close they are to the edge when pushing it that hard.

great post
enjoyed seeing that again.

Guy Martin is pretty special and is handy on the short circuits too.

I think it's Guy who's due to lead this newcomer around the course over the weekend (see photo of guy and the other!) !!!! not at race speeds though

RACE RESULT SPOILER

















































McGuinness claims 15th TT victory
John McGuinness celebrated Honda's 50th anniversary of racing by storming to a 15th career Superbike TT win on the Isle of Man.

The TT legend was in imperious form around the 'island', recording three laps averaging more than 130mph, including an outright lap record of 130.442mph on lap two.

Dominating all six laps to produce a new race record, McGuinness led a Honda 1-2-3 on the anniversary of their half-century in racing, the HM Plant Honda rider leading team-mate Steve Plater and Guy Martin.

TAS Suzuki's Bruce Anstey retired at Ballacraine on the opening lap, while McAdoo Kawasaki's Conor Cummins was also forced out in the closing stages from fourth place. The position instead fell to Ian Hutchison, with Gary Johnson fifth.


JM is the man

Go Gaz in 5th place, only his 3rd time at the TT
