Stats: 70 Quickest TT Racers

It’s incredible to point this out, the 70 fastest racers in TT history have all lapped the fabled, mythical Mountain Course at in excess of the 125 mph lap mark.

20 years since the first 125 mph + lap speed set by the much missed David Jefferies, the pace has sky rocketed in modern times around the world’s most acclaimed, famous road race circuit.

To date 22 racers have topped the coveted 130 mph lap yardstick including of course current existing lap record holder, new FHO Racing signing Peter Hickman (135.452).

Behind Hickman positions 2nd through to 10th in terms of fastest lap speeds are presently held by the following:

Last year’s Senior winner Dean Harrison (134.918), 19 times TT victor Michael Dunlop (133.962), 16 times TT victor Ian Hutchinson (133.115), 23 times TT winner John McGuinness (132.701).

Conor Cummins (132.610), Rich Energy OMG Racing’s James Hillier (132.414), Guy Martin (132.398), Bruce Anstey (132.298) and British Superbike Champion Josh Brookes (131.745).

The most recent 130 mph club inductees from TT 2019 were IRRC Superbike series victor Davey Todd (131.491) and reigning Privateers Champion Jamie Coward, who during the Senior TT of 2019 lapped at 130.317 mph, which yielded him the title of being the fastest Yamaha mounted racer in TT history.
