That’s the average speed in miles per hour of Northern Ireland’s Michael Dunlop as he obliterated the previous lap record around the Isle of Man TT course earlier this week.

Such is the enormity of this achievement that the organisers have decided to publicly share that lap of the usually hugely copyright-bound racing. It makes for some scary, but compulsive viewing.

Do yourself a favour and find 17 minutes to watch this.

Length of circuit:
37.733 miles (60.725 km)

Lap record:
16 minutes 58.254 seconds
= average speed of 133.393 mph (214.675 km/h)

Absolutely mental!
