Watch: Guy Martin rides Honda RC174

Martin rides Hailwood’s six-cylinder Honda at Castle Combe

HERE’S Guy Martin riding Honda's 297cc six-cylinder RC174 at Castle Combe in Wiltshire on Sunday.

The road racer and TV personality was taking part in a ‘Mike’s Bikes’ parade in honour of Mike Hailwood, seen by many as the greatest racer of all time, by riding the machine on which he set a 107mph TT lap record in 1967.

Martin was joined by other stars of racing including Stuart Graham, the late Hailwood’s former team-mate, following on a 250 four.

Three-time world champion Freddie Spencer and 23-time TT winner John McGuinness were also at the event, billed as the motorcycle ‘Grand National’, with the Mike’s Bikes parade the highlight.
