Michael Rutter has bagged himself a £10,000 prize and the honour of being the first rider to lap at over 100mph in a race on a TT Zero bike as he beat John McGuinness to the win this afternoon on the Isle of Man.
Rutter did 104.056mph on the Segway Motoczysz and was nearly 37 seconds ahead of McGuinness at Glen Helen which he increased to 53s at Ramsey while chasing Rutter's team-mate Mark Miller on the road. He passed the American at the Bungalow when he was able to use a map which gave him more power to come down the Mountain finishing with a 102.215mph lap.
Eventually, McGuinness whittled the lead down to 24s at the chequered flag with Miller in third. He also broke the 100mph barrier with a 101.065 lap. Rob Barber was the fourth and final finisher on the Zero Emission TGM with a 78.2mph lap.
