The Flying Kiwi began to spread his wings at the TT practice session last night (Wednesday).
Bruce Anstey lapped the Mountain Course at nearly 129.7mph to log the fastest Superbike time of the week so far.
Speaking to Chris Kinley live on Manx Radio TT after his Superbike lap, Anstey was typically low key (listen to audio file below):
Cameron Donald was quickest on the Supersport machines last night, while Gary Dunlop now tops the Superstock standings after he clocked nearly 128.5mph.
Donald topped 125mph, but was short of Michael Dunlop's mark from Tuesday evening's session.
Meanwhile in the sidecars, double winners from TT2010 Klaus Klaffenbock and Dan Sayle set the fastest time of the week so far, lapping at over 113.7mph.
