16 career wins on the Mountain Course, and now the most successful Superstock rider at the Isle of Man TT. Read it and weep; Hutchy’s message to the competition is clear.
In a super dominant performance, The Bingley Bullet sealed his third successive Superstock win in as many years with a margin of 22-seconds over second placed Peter Hickman and local Manx rider Dan Kneen in third. Hutchy lapped the legendary circuit twice at a blistering pace of over 131mph (average speed), and posted the fastest lap of the race at 131.639mph.
Hutchy shrugged off start line problems, where seconds before he was about to release the clutch and fire down Bray hill, the dashboard on his 1000cc Tyco BMW S1000RR went blank. After several unsuccessful attempts to restart the electrical systems on his bike; Hutchy started the race anyway; with the issue correcting itself as the 37 year old racer punched into second gear.
