Guy Martin. Quest for Speed

Post  Bosco15 on Sun 13 Dec 2015, 9:22 pm

Just saw another Guy Martin show advertised. 
Ad was on SBS2, but show could be on 1 or 2, I missed that bit. 
7.30 Thursday.  One of the SBS channels. 
Guy Martin doing things quickly on various modes of transport.

Our TV programs are a little out of sync down here compared with the mainland, but was your show the Pikes Peak episode this week ?

Just imagine the time he would he have done if he wasn't limited to half throttle ?

Yes. The first Brit to win Pikes Peak hill climb. 
Pretty good viewing.  
I wish that they had included the onboard footage of his run, or at least some of it. The basis of the whole show and we got to see about three seconds of his run! Evil or Very Mad

There ya go:

Mind you, he wont be able to enter his bike next year.

Two riders died in the event in the last two years.
They were riding sports bikes.

So the organisers have banned motorcycles with clip on bars. Now you can only enter motorcycles which have one piece bars as OEM fitment.

I think they've misinterpreted the data.

Both riders were wearing leathers and a helmet. They should ban those.

He comes across as a bit of a numpty until you see his race face, full of intensity, concentration and commitment a very different Guy. Shocked

I actually liked the show. Guy talks a bit quick in parts which can be hard to understand,  but he seems like a pretty nice bloke that loves to do stuff himself where he can. Turbo bikes seem like a pain in the ass though. I'm pretty sure that bike was a gsxr 1100. So it's the bandits older brother at the end of the day.

Sorry Bosco not an Austin, looking at Pikes Peak I think it might be a Hillman!
