Leave the Guy alone

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

In re­sponse to let­ter of the week from Rob Allen. We all know Guy Martin’s a bit of an ec­cen­tric, a bit of a non­con­formist. That’s why he ap­peals to so many bik­ers. It’s that sense of in­di­vid­u­al­ity. I watched him on Our Guy In China the other night, “travel broad­ens the mind” was one of his quotes, and it’s true. It looks like he’s got an op­por­tu­nity many of us would rel­ish, do­ing stuff we don’t nor­mally get the chance to do. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to see him on that IOM top step. He de­serves it. But if rac­ing got too cor­po­rate for him, if he just wasn’t get­ting the buzz from rac­ing, who can blame him for look­ing else­where? It’s like Stoner, we’d all like to see him mix­ing it with Vi­nales, Mar­quez, Rossi, Lorenzo and the rest, but it’s his call. Good luck to the bloke. Any­way, Guy makes good TV and writes a de­cent book too. As well as be­ing a half de­cent truck fit­ter. Steve Bell­wood, Selby
