Classic TT 2015

Dean Harrison won the 500cc race on his MV Agusta, Michael Rutter won the 350cc race on a Honda, Michael Dunlop won the Formula 1 race on a Suzuki and Ryan Kneen won the Formula 2 race on his Yamaha.

Bruce Anstey set a lap of 126.261 on his YZR500 in the F1 race, Dunlop was inside the previous lap record too and broke his own race record by over a minute.

It does beg the question though, what is a Grand Prix bike doing in an F1 race?

The fact that Michael was able to keep it honest on that Suzuki is an achievement in itself even though Bruce did have problems towards the end.

Too bad they don't run this back to back with the TT. They could probably keep the lager crowd to extend their stay, no?

Not sure it would work really, TT fortnight is pretty mental as it is, a lot of the riders are fucked by the end of it, I don't think they'd want to add some more races on to it.

I got it. I had assumed the Classic was more comparable to the Festival of Speed. So it seems that it's a proper racing event then.
