The Midlands rider recorded the fastest ever lap in the class with an average speed of 121.909mph.

Rutter, 47, finished 8.5 seconds ahead of Bathams Mugen team-mate John McGuinness.

Welshman Ian Lougher completed the rostrum, three minutes 19 seconds behind 23-time TT winner McGuinness.

For Rutter, it was his second successive victory in the race and the fifth of his career in the electric bike event.

He has also won a Supersport race in 1998 and enjoyed a Supertwins success in 2017.

"I tried really hard, people think these bikes are slow but I had the front sliding. I tried everything and it paid off," said Rutter.

"It was spinning coming out of Quarter Bridge. I was trying to be smooth and keep calm."

Why not lengthen it to six laps?...."Rutter now four hours behind McGuinness on corrected time"....
