Stats: Quickest Superstock TT Average Race Speeds 2010’s

The fastest three average race speeds from Superstock Mountain Course race stints during the 2010’s, were all set in the record breaking production class encounter from 2018.

Race winner, world’s fastest road racer Peter Hickman, who set an incredible new Superstock lap record of 134.403 mph, averaged throughout the four laps 131.553 mph.

Runner-up 19 times TT winner Michael Dunlop (131.412), current Senior TT Champion Dean Harrison (131.121) like Hickman both averaged in excess of 131 mph.
