Tony Pond - In Car IOM TT - The Ultimate Test - Rover 827 Vitesse TT Track 100mph record
The Isle of Man TT Course filmed from a Rover 800 Fastback production
During 1988, Tony Pond, one of Britains most successful rally drivers and
Isle of Man resident, used a standard production Rover 800 fastback to
attempt the first ever 100mph lap of the 37.73 mile Isle of Man tt course
in a four-wheeled vehicle.
the challenge was a formidable one which created tremendous interest both
on the Island and outside. Despite a top speed on the level of over 140mph,
and the use of racing tyres, the Rover only had 1/4 the power to weight
ratio of the top TT racing bikes which are capable of average speeds of up
to 119 mph.
The video, based on the footage filmed during several laps completed on
closed roads during september 1988, shows you just what it is like to be on
the absolute limit in a car driven by a top-line driver over some of the
most demanding roads in the world.
Commentary (with gritted teeth and bulging eyes!) is from Manx Radios Geoff
Cannel, who braved the lap as a passenger to record his impressions.
And did they do the 'ton' lap? Well, the answer is here of course
Please note that a lap time of 22 minutes 38 seconds equate to 100mph
