‘I’m not ungrateful for the amount of support I get’
Returning to the TT after a year’s absence may delight his legions of fans, but Guy struggles to deal with the attention he receives.
“I’m not ungrateful for the amount of support I get, because it’s great, but I can’t go anywhere,” he explained. “The last year I raced was better because I took the dog and I could get away from it, but by the end of the TT I was still ready for home.”
Guy explained one of the main reasons he signed for Honda was that race boss, Neil Tuxworth, has agreed to shield him from some of the unwanted attention.
“Neil said that I can concentrate on the job. I don’t know how he’s going to do that but I’m there to do a job and I just want to do it.”
