ANSTEY WITH A LIGHTNING FAST LAP IN IRELAND GIVES HIM WORLD RECORD STATUS
NORTHERN IRELAND (AUGUST 14, 2010) Kiwi Bruce Anstey made history two weeks ago aboard his Suzuki GSX-R1000 Superbike. With a tank full of VP, Anstey made the world’s fastest lap on a Superbike track averaging an astonishing 133.977mph in the final race at the Ulster Grand Prix held on the Dundrod Circuit.
Anstey’s record-breaking lap resulted in a win at Dundrod, marking his team’s 12 th victory overall at the Ulster GP. This event brought out a crowd of 30,000 to the prestigious Dundrod. It was obvious that Anstey quickly became the favorite of this Irish crowd.
Unfortunately, Anstey couldn’t grab the victory in the opening race at Ulster. It was a thrilling six-lap fight between six determined riders. Anstey suggested afterwards during a radio interview that there wasn’t much he could do being stuck behind a few backmarkers on the Lindsay Hairpin for the final circuit, but was happy in the circumstances with second place.
“I said before today that our bikes were very competitive and while I missed out in the cat and mouse game for victory in the opening Superbike race, I wasn’t going to make the same mistake twice. Granted, there wasn’t much in it between the top four or five guys today, but ultimately we proved that the GSX-R1000 in Relentless Suzuki trim is not only the best, but the fastest road racing Superbike on the planet. A big thank you to all the boys in the team today for a big effort – they work hard all year and it’s nice to give them something to boast about at the end of a tough season.”
