Good lad Josh!!!
To do such an impressive lap time, on his first proper visit to the iconic island, is staggering to say the least. I watched his 'moment' over the 4th gear crest at Rheucullen and I almost soiled myself!!
Circuit racer to road racer is hard to accomplish but I think this Aussie has what it takes :)

Good luck and save racing to all involved in this years TT.

Indeed a most incredible performance and one that is seriously impressive. I still hope he is seriously riding within a safe degree of what he knows around there as I hate the tragedies that are sadly all too common there. Fantastic to see such a well known short circuit rider have the interest, respect and balls for the circuit to give it his attention in this manner. Respect is due. On TV the crest after Rhencullen (3?) looks just like another crest. I wish they'd taken the time to explain this is a point immediately following a high speed uphill left hand sweeper and the bike is still being straightened up for the hump - very little time at high speed to accomplish this cleanly!
