Bruce Anstey Cruises to Isle of Man Formula 1 Win

New Zealander Bruce Anstey dominated the Classic TT Formula 1 race in the Isle of Man with a victory margin of over one minute, setting a record lap speed of 123.894 for two-stroke machines over the Mountain Course.

Anstey is a man in form as he followed up a double at the Ulster Grand Prix with another impressive display in the Isle of Man.

“It was the perfect race – the bike never missed a beat and everything was spot on and I just had a big smile on my face for the three laps,” Anstey said.

Anstey, 45, was born in Wellington. He is signed to race for Padgett’s Honda, having previously ridden for Relentless Suzuki.
