Guy Martin crashed on the first lap of the Su­per­bike TT af­ter hit­ting a false neu­tral.

Un­able to turn the bike he ran wide at Do­ran’s and hit the kerb and then the wall.

Af­ter the race, a clearly shaken Martin said: “It was a big one. I had a box full of neu­trals. It’s fast there. I am an­gry at the bike. It doesn’t like me and it doesn’t like John. It needs time to make it bet­ter. The team are bril­liant – no­body is at fault.”

Honda Rac­ing team boss Jonny Twel­ve­trees said: “It was a fast crash. caused by a false neu­tral, which could hap­pen to any­body. There was noth­ing bro­ken. The guys have checked the data, al­though that only tells you so much, and we’ve looked at the bike and there is noth­ing wrong with it.”

Martin hurt his wrist in the crash and it is now not cer­tain if he will race again in this year’s TT. He is due to race the Mu­gen in the Zero TT, a CBR600 in the sec­ond su­pers­port race and a Fire­blade in the Su­per­stock and Se­nior TT.
