Jenny Tinmouth recognised for road racing success

The fastest-ever woman around the Isle of Man TT course will be presented with the Susan Jenness Trophy.
The fastest woman ever around the Isle of Man TT course is recognised. Jenny Tinmouth raced on the famous Mountain Course for the first time in 2009, and ended the Isle of Man TT fortnight as the fastest female solo competitor in the event's illustrious history.

In recognition of her achievement, the TT Supporters Club selected Tinmouth as the recipient of the Susan Jenness Trophy. The trophy is presented every year in memory of Susan Jenness, who lost her life while marshalling at an off-road event in the UK. It recognises the female competitor who, in the eyes of club officials, had the meritorious performance at the TT.

Tinmouth made several visits to the Isle of Man to acquaint herself with the legendary TT circuit, and approached practice week in a professional manner, gradually building her speed to a fastest lap of 110.503mph in the final session.

In the first race – the Dainese Superbike – Tinmouth recorded an impressive 114.04mph lap on her way to a 44th –place finish.
In the first Relentless Supersport race, Tinmouth was making steady progress when the gear lever bracket on her Honda CBR600RR broke on the final lap, forcing her out of the race. She made up for the disappointment later in the day during the Royal London 360 Superstock TT when she clocked a fastest lap of 116.483mph, smashing the record for the fastest woman around the course. Tinmouth finished 47th in the race.

Due to horrendous weather conditions, Tinmouth decided against taking part in the second Relentless Supersport race.

Her amazing debut came to a stunning finale in the Senior TT. Riding the sorrymate.com Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade, Tinmouth set her best time of the fortnight – 19mins 22.56secs, an average speed of 116.835mph.

Riding confidently in 47th position, she was unable to complete the final lap, due to the red flags being shown. Her final lap – a flying one – would surely have yielded an even faster speed.
