Magnificent second place for Guy Martin
After his Superstock and Supersport podiums (cf. Motul Sport News No.22) at the beginning of the week, the driver of Team Relentless Suzuki by TAS Racing confirmed his status as a man to be contended with by clinching second place at the PokerStars Senior Race, the major Tourist Trophy race.
Guy Martin finished just behind the famous John Mc Guiness who, in addition to taking his 17th Tourist Trophy, also clinched the new race record with 1 :45:45.80 (the former record had been held by Steve Plater since 2009).
In addition to the major communication deployed by Motul, partner of the event since 2010, the twenty invited clients and the thousands of spectators present also saw the handing of the Motul prize for the best technical performance to the rider of a 100% electric motorcycle.
