The senior race Dunlop was in 5th and not even close to winning, hutchy was 1st but crashed causing a restart, Dunlop changed his rear shock then won.

Changed rear shock on the Suzuki...sounds familiar

He wasn't doing that bad.

At the end of the first lap (red flagged on the second lap after Hutchy crashed)

1. # 10 - Peter Hickman - 131.828 mph
2. # 4 - Ian Hutchinson - 131.609 mph
3. # 9 - Dean Harrison - 131.251 mph
4. # 2 - Bruce Anstey - 131.097 mph
5. # 6 - Michael Dunlop - 131.026 mph

The Senior TT is six laps, a long race. He was on the pace and already had a Big Bike win that week. I took a picture as they all came in after the red flag, and can just make out the leader board in the background. I knew it was Hutchy as he hadn't come through one of the checkpoints, then it was red flagged.

Really pleased he won. I joked before hand that if Michael Dunlop wins the Senior I would get a Suzuki .......

This is the leader board for the Senior before it was Red Flagged, as it still has # 4 - Ian Hutchinson. After it was restarted it was # 6 from start to finish !

Looks like Guy Martin is done racing motorcycles. He is really fast, but has had a lot of issues with bikes and a few crashes. Good on him. if he doesn't feel like doing it anymore, he would be a fool to continue. That's how people get hurt, when their heart isn't in it anymore.

Good for him. He looked shaken up after his crashed the new fire blade at the TT this year. And when Guy looks like that, you know it is bad because he is nutty on a motorcycle.
