Guy Martin takes to the beach

Honda Racing star spends Sunday getting sandy

Guy Martin

IT SEEMS like Guy Martin decided to celebrate the start of British summertime, and keep his riding skills sharp, by going to the beach for a bit of sand racing in the sunshine yesterday.

The 35-year-old racer, TV star, truck mechanic, author and record breaker was riding his Triumph Tiger 800 XCA on Mablethorpe beach, where beach racing takes place between October and March.

It’s not the first time the Grimsby-based rider has been spotted riding at Mablethorpe beach – he took part in a race there at the start of the year.

In January, Guy Martin announced his return to road racing by signing with Honda Racing to ride the new Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2 alongside John McGuinness in 2017.
