Manx Grand Prix: Hind Dips Under Existing Unofficial Junior Lap Record

The unquestionable main story from this afternoon’s two lap Junior/Senior Manx GP practice session, was James Hind setting a new unofficial Junior class lap record.

Hind piloting the BTS/NLC Components backed YZF R6 Yamaha lapped the fabled, mythical Mountain Course from a standing start at 121.10 mph.

Third in Saturday’s Lightweight Classic TT, Hind’s lap speed of 121.10 mph, surpasses the previous unofficial Junior MGP lap record set by second quickest today Nathan Harrison (120.22 mph), who lapped last Saturday at 120.67 mph.
