Swiftest Pre TT Classic Yesteryear Superbike Exponents

Since 2010, lap times have dropped rapidly within the Post Classic Superbike class at the Blackford Financial Services Pre TT Classic Races.

To date just five competitors have gone sub 2 minute 30 seconds on yesteryear Superbike machinery around Billown, with the current class lap record holder being reigning Junior Classic TT winner Jamie Coward.

On route to class honours in 2019, Coward piloting the Prez Racing/Kraus Racing supported ZXR 750 Kawasaki, set a blistering new outright lap record of 2 minutes 23.998 seconds.
