BY foxsports • June 10, 2016

27-year-old Michael Dunlop reset his lap record at the 37.73-mile Snaefell Mountain Course on the Isle of Man on Friday en route to winning the 2016 Isle of Man PokerStars Senior TT.

Dunlop, riding a Hawk BMW, led Tyco BMW’s Ian Hutchinson home in second and Honda Racing CBR’s John McGuinness in third. Dunlop’s margin of victory was 31.476 seconds after six laps around the infamous track.

During the race, Dunlop ran a lap of 16:53.929 at 133.962 mph. This broke his lap record set in Saturday’s Superbike race by over four seconds.

Other race winners this week included John Holden and Andy Winkle in the Sidecar TT Race 1, Ian Hutchinson in both Supersport TT races and the Superstock TT race, Ivan Lintin in the Lightweight TT, Bruce Anstey in the TT Zero, and Ben and Tom Birchall in the Sidecar TT Race 2.

Here’s an onboard from when Dunlop set the lap record earlier in the week:
