Manx Grand Prix 2010 enjoys great weather and new records

Irishman Michael Sweeney set the fastest time of the week to date at 119.051mph on his 600 Yamaha   
SPEEDS were high in near-perfect conditions for the fourth timed practice of the 2010 Manx Grand Prix on Thursday evening. Lap records were unofficially bettered in several classes, while a couple more were within split seconds of also being swept aside.

The fastest lap of the week to date was achieved by Irishman Michael Sweeney at 119.051mph on the 600 Yamaha he will ride in next week’s Junior and Senior, followed by Onchan’s Si Fulton at 118.800mph and Wayne Kirwan 118.429, while Sulby’s Dan Sayle went quicker than he has ever gone (even surpassing the outright Sidecar TT lap record he achieved with Nick Crowe at 116.667 in 2007) with a speed of 118.204mph on his R6.
