The 2013 Isle of Man is drawing to a close and the premier event, the Senior TT, has finished. One of the all-time greats at the Isle of Man is John McGuinness, who had gone winless this year until the final, premier Senior TT event. McGuinness redeemed himself with the victory (his 20th career win at the Isle of Man), leading home teammate Michael Dunlop (both aboard Honda TT Legend’s-prepped CBR1000RRs). Bruce Anstey brought a third Honda home for the final podium spot.
Michael Dunlop had been the big story this week, winning the first four important solo events, and having a chance to tie the record for five solo wins in a week. He fell one position short in the final event, however.
The danger of the TT was underscored yet again, when racer Jonathan Howarth crashed shortly after the start of the Senior TT, injuring himself and roughly ten spectators. After a red flag and re-start, McGuinness worked his way to the front and victory.
