John McGuinness romped home in style to win the first race of the 2004 Isle of Man TT, shattering David Jefferies Lap record in the process.

McGuinness took his Yamaha R1 to an amazing record lap of 17:43.8, which works out to an average speed of 127.68 mph from a standing start!

He lead on time throughout the 4 lap race and actually lead on the road for most of it.

Bruce Ansty was McGuinness's closest rival coming home on his Suzuki GSX-R1000 in second place, more than 10 seconds down, while his team-mate Adrian Archibald took third.

Ian Lougher was fourth, Jason Griffiths fifth and Richard Britton sixth, with Mark Parrett, Gordon Blackley, Chris Heath and Nigel Davies finishing the top ten.

Ryan Farquhar finished well down in 35th place after being black flagged for problems with his Kawasaki ZX-10R. Farquhar couldn't fix the problm despite a trip to the pits and was forced to crawl home at a very slow pace.
