Dutch TT 2016 – A day of records

The first Dutch TT to be held on a Sunday, the 2016 Dutch TT was one for the record books in addition to the achievements of Jack Miller.

- Each of the three winners at the Dutch TT were first time winners in their particular class.  The last time that this occurred at a grand prix event was at the Grand Prix of the Americas in 2013, when the winners were: MotoGP™ - Marc Marquez, Moto2™ – Nico Terol, Moto3™ – Alex Rins.
