Ian Hutchinson made it two wins in a day when he smashed the lap and race records in Monday afternoon’s RL360 Quantum Superstock TT race at the Isle of Man, the Tyco BMW rider leading from start to finish to take victory by 27 seconds.

With an opening lap of 133.098mph, it was the Bingley rider’s 13th TT race win as Dean Harrison and James Hillier battled all the way for the runner-up position.

Harrison clinching second in the end by just one second from Hillier, while BMW-mounted Australian David Johnson crossed the line in ninth position.

Earlier, Hutchinson took his 12th TT win on Monday morning when he dominated the Monster Energy Supersport race from start to finish.

The CAME BPT Yamaha rider defeated Michael Dunlop by 14.3s in a race-record winning time with Silicone Engineering rider Harrison taking third.

However it was later announced Dunlop had been excluded from the results for a non-deliberate or performance-enhancing technical infringement.

As a result, Harrison moved up to second place, with Hillier now third. Of the Australians Cameron Donald was 10th in race one, while Alex Pickett claimed 31st.
