International road-racing legend, maverick star of the IOM TT, truck mechanic and TV presenter: Guy Martin lives on the edge, addicted to speed, thoroughly exhilarated by danger. You’ll get inside his head as he stares death in the face and risks his life in search of the next high. Discover what it feels like to survive a 170mph fireball at the TT in 2010 and come back to do it all again. He’ll sweep you up in a gritty sort of glory as he slogs it out for a place on the podium, but you’ll also see him struggle with the flipside of fame. Meet his friends and foes, his family, his teammates and bosses and discover what motivates him, and where his strengths and weaknesses lie.
For the first time, here is the full story in Guy’s own words. From the boy who learned to prep bikes with his dad, to the spirited team mechanic, paying his way by collecting beer glasses in pubs, to the young racer at the start of his first race and the buzz he’s been chasing ever since.
