TT 2019: Wigan’s Daley Tops 122 Mph Lap Mark, Continues Solid Progress

Topping the 122 mph lap mark on route to a top thirty finish in the Dunlop Senior TT, Josh Daley was another racer to leave Manx shores in spite of the interesting weather!, in a very good frame of mind.

Alongside the aforementioned top 30 finish in last Friday’s drama filled six lap Senior race, TT 2019 also saw the affable Wigan racer aboard his own teams Kawasaki mounts claim respectively 45th, 43rd, 39th, 37th place finishes within the RST Superbike, Royal London 360 Superstock, Monster Energy Supersport races.

Completing each race he competed in, ambitious next generation International Road Racer Daley, continues to solidly establish himself as a highly capable performer on the world famous Manx roads.

Looking forward to making the journey back to the Isle of Man in August, for the Classic TT Races, he recently reflected on his fourth TT voyage, via a recently issued press release, stating:

“Overall, I’m really happy with this year and I can’t wait to return to the Classic TT later in the year to race around the best circuit in the world. A massive thank you to my team for all the effort they have put into me and also to everyone for supporting me.

A big thanks also to Gary Thompson and his team, all of the marshals and all of the spectators for making the TT what it is,”
