Manx Grand Prix Senior Race 2019
Updated: Jun 24, 2020
Heading into the Senior race conditions were not ideal due to strong winds around the mountain course. Having won the Junior race the day before the intention was to take it easy and just enjoy the race, which is what he did for 2 laps lying comfortably in 2nd place.
However, after the pits Nathan realised that a win was very much attainable due to the race leader being only 6 seconds in front. Another fast pit stop from the team meant that Nathan was now leading the race leaving the pits.
By the end of the third lap Nathan had gained a 6 second advantage and a second win was in sight. During his last lap of the mountain course for the year Nathan increased his lead to 17 seconds putting in a 122.094 mph even with traffic and adverse weather conditions. This classed him as the fastest 600 and was just shy of achieving the Manx Grand Prix lap record of 122.866 mph which was set on a 750cc.
Nathan won the MGP double in just under 24 hours, making his dream a reality.
