THE PERFECT LAP
Peter Hickman's sixth and final lap of the 2018 Senior TT Race took TT racing to new heights. In a time of 16 minutes 42.778 seconds, averaging a speed of 135.452mph, he took victory in one of the greatest ever TT Races and put his name in the history books as the first rider to lap at over 135mph.
But, it wasn't the perfect lap....
Using onboard footage from 4 different laps, from 2 different races, and from 2 different riders, we've stitched together the fastest ever sector times from the six timing points around the 37.73-mile TT Course to create The Perfect Lap. Featuring Peter Hickman, Dean Harrison, and some very big flies, the end result is a lap of 136.413mph in a time of 16 minutes 35.711 seconds. Will we ever see a lap of that speed?
