One of the most divisive things on race week is the TT Zero – are they ‘real’ bikes? Is a TT Zero win a ‘real’ win? Of course they are real bikes, of course it is a real win. Yes at the moment it is only one lap but the race distance is equivalent to a full race at Tandragee, Cookstown, Armoy, even the NW200 so of course it is a ‘real’ win. I don’t know how or when this attitude will change, maybe in about 6 years when these bikes are lapping at 133 – 134mph. Mark my words it’s going to happen – hopefully with Bruce Anstey as the pilot. Today however the congratulations go to Michael Rutter for a sound real TT win on the real bike – the Mugen!
