Guy Martin



THE OFFICIAL GUY MARTIN APPRECIATION THREAD

I find Guy Martin to be totally fascinating. As per his Wikipedia entry ...

Guy Martin (born 4 November 1981 in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, England) is a British motorcycle racer, lorry mechanic and occasional TV presenter. He has primarily competed in road racing events such as the Isle of Man TT, Ulster Grand Prix and North West 200. Widely regarded as an amiable and "colourful" character, Martin has at times found it difficult to concentrate on his racing, primarily as a consequence of the media attention he attracts, not least at the Isle of Man TT.[1]

BBC Sport - Ulster GP: Watch Guy Martin's crash at Dundrod

Video included... I hope he's going to be 100% ... but it sure shows the risk of road-racing versus on modern tracks with the huge run-offs areas.... his body is tossed around like a toy over the ground.

I happened to watch Our Guy in India on a flight. He seems like a genuine, wacky, down to earth guy.
