By Claire Williamson

This is the incredible footage which gives a glimpse as to what it's like to be Michael Dunlop as he created a new record for the fasted lap from a standing start at the Isle of Man TT course.

The eleven-time TT winner completed the first ever sub-17 minute lap of the 37.73 mile course in 16:58.439 on Saturday.

That was an average of 133.369mph from a standing start, obliterating all previous records during the Isle of Man TT Superbike race.

Dunlop took an historic Superbike TT win with the new lap record.

Ian Hutchinson was second and John McGuinness completed the trio on the podium.
