A packed crowd were treated to one of the greatest Isle of Man TT races in the TT’s long illustrious history as Peter Hickman won a sensational PokerStars Senior TT race, setting a new outright lap record of 135.452mph on the final lap to defeat Dean Harrison by just two seconds.
Harrison had led the race for five and a half of the six laps but Hickman reeled him on the sixth lap and, having been quicker over the Mountain all race, he turned a 3.7s deficit at Glen Helen into a lead of 0.8s at the Bungalow and he smashed the race record by 48.064s to take his second win. Harrison took second with Conor Cummins in third.
