Tony Pond IOM TT Challenge Rover Vitesse 100mph lap record
In 1990 Tony Pond one of the greatest British drivers laps the Isle of Man TT course in a Rover 827 Vitesse averaging 102 mph. For me this is an incredible lap in a car that is far better than it was given credit for. Can you imagine someone trying that in a Ford Granada or BMW 520 or Citroen, Renault, Vauxhall or any other similar priced cars in the Rover price range. As said below by liverush24 this was to show how good the Rover is and at the same time Tony Pond showed how brilliant a driver he is. He did that lap with an average of over 100mph through those narrow lanes and country roads, find other 100mph average laps and get a true perspective of the achievement. Higgins lap to is impressive and a great achievement but done in a modern lightweight state of the art, turbo charged rally car with computer controlled 4 wheel drive to save you in big moments, ABS etc etc, Ponds lap is in an 80's front wheel drive production car with a about 180hp, that is truly brilliant.





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 saloon car 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 average A Duke Marketing Production 1988 Introductory sequence courtesy of Clarke Hooper/Rover Editor: Anglin Buttimore Music: Elis and Armstrong
