Description

Guy famously often said, 'I love racing because it can kill you'. But he's a dad now, and he wants to see his daughter grow up to become a welder. The racing had to stop.

But the thrill of an extreme, speed-based challenge still drives him, and his new mission is to hit a world-record-breaking 300mph on a motorbike he has built himself. Others have died trying.

We also find him leaping out of a plane with a 1940s parachute, competing in a self-supported 750-mile bike-packing race through Arizona in 30 degree heat and channelling Steve McQueen in The Great Escape for a stunt jump over two barbed-wire fences. Speeding tractors (135mph) have replaced two wheels, and US truck racing is his new TT. All the above has been taken on with a dodgy ankle, which he keeps meaning to have replaced.

Welcome back to the world of Guy Martin.

About the Author

Except for one summer spent sleeping inside a truck in a concrete yard in Northern Ireland, Guy Martin has lived within 20 miles of the Grimsby hospital he was born in, on the 4th November 1981. But that hasn't stopped the professional truck mechanic turned taytie farmer from winning multiple international road races, plus scoring fifteen Isle of Man TT podiums. Nor has it prevented him from becoming a regular face on prime-time Channel 4, presenting critically acclaimed documentaries and travelogues, as well as his popular returning series Speed with Guy Martin. Did we mention he's also the author of four phenomenal Sunday Times bestselling memoirs? A genuine, one-off marvel.
