The ‘Flying Kiwi’ set the first 120mph lap on a 250 machine as he won the Classic TT Lightweight race last year on the Padgett’s Honda RS250.

He received a fantastic reception as he completed his lap on Saturday prior to the Bennetts Senior race.

Speaking afterwards, Anstey said: “I’m knackered after that! It was great to be back out there though.

“Everyone was waving and thanks to all the marshals out there, they do a fantastic job over these few weeks.

“The bike is awesome and I enjoyed that.”
