Royal Enfield scores first ton lap at Manx Grand Prix!
No, it is not a historical article. It happened this week! Legendary Enfield rider Steve Linsdell, on a 1970 Seeley Enfield finished fifth in the Manx Grand Prix and scored the first 100 mph+ lap by a British pushrod single in the circuit, according to the official site. Funny, since I had read he had done 100.16 mph already in last year's edition. Maybe they meant the first lap this year? Read about his 9000rpm 50hp fire breathing Bullet here.
