One to watch in today’s Monster Energy Supersport race is new wave pure road racing talent, Jim Hind.
Lightweight class winner times two at the Manx Grand Prix of 2019, the 11 times Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough victor has impressed many TT aficionados throughout practice week.
Prior to a major new unofficial personal best lap speed of 128.129 mph, Hind set on Wednesday night a nigh on 126 mph lap (125.746) aboard the Barry Sheene replica liveried, North Lincolnshire Components backed GSX-R 1000 Suzuki.
Reflecting on this accomplishment, the NG Road Racing series regular stated:
“Pleased with that, quicker than I went in the Senior race (last year), can’t complain.”
Going onto comment about qualifying week action up to Thursday, he said:
“First day was a bit rubbish, because I did four laps in the un-timed session and should have gone out in the timed session but that was my mistake, other than that good.”
14 plate-holder for this morning, early afternoon’s Supersport encounter, Hind like the bulk of the paddock complimented the re-surfacing, implemented upon the fabled, mythical Mountain Course.
“Loads better and the best bit that has been done, is the bit between Waterworks and the Gooseneck, that’s mint.”
