Guy Martin’s TT dis­as­ter

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Guy Martin’s much vaunted re­turn to the TT on the 2017 Honda Rac­ing Fire­blade ended in dis­as­ter with the Lin­colnshire ace crash­ing out of the open­ing Su­per­bike race at Do­ran’s Bend. The 35-year-old was never in con­tention af­ter lap­ping 7mph slower dur­ing prac­tice than Michael Dun­lop’s fastest time on the Ben­netts Suzuki and the hand in­jury he suf­fered in the crash saw him sit out the Su­pers­port race on Wil­son Craig’s CBR600RR.

Clearly strug­gling with the er­rant new Honda su­per­bike that had al­ready been re­spon­si­ble for John Mcguin­ness’ non-ap­pear­ance at this year’s TT fes­ti­val, Guy be­came im­mersed in a week of bit­ter ran­cour with his Honda bosses.

The road rac­ing tele­vi­sion star even­tu­ally with­drew from Fri­day’s Se­nior race.
