The 11th June 2010 saw the first rider ever to win five TT Races in a week, after clinching a shortened four-lap Senior Race.
Spectators were set for a thriller as Ian Hutchinson, John McGuinness, Conor Cummins, and Guy Martin went head-to-head over the first two laps. With all four lapping at over 130mph, there was less than six seconds splitting the quartet.
Dramatic scenes ensued at lap three when Martin was involved in a major incident. He miraculously survived, but the race was stopped, recommencing later that day, and shortened to a four-lap circuit.
Hutchinson led with an amazing opening lap of 131.487mph, closely followed by McGuinness and Cummins, with Cameron Donald a close fourth.
As the race progressed, Keith Amor, Ryan Farquhar and Bruce Anstey edged closer to the leader board. With two leading riders subsequently retiring and a further crashing, this became any man’s race.
The final winner cruised round his final lap, coming home 37.77 seconds clear of Farquhar - his first ever Superbike podium at the TT.
Other stand-out moments from this dramatic race included Jenny Tinmouth extending her title as the fastest women around the course with a final lap of 119.945mph.
