Guy is one of the most popular IOM TT racer and has been on the podium more than 10 times.

Guy makes it look easy, but better him than us I think. He set a record of 78.15 mph (125.77 kph) in a wall of death with a circumference of 382 feet and was made entirely of wood. Enough talk, watch the video for yourself and let your jaw drop!
Pretty insane don’t you think? Guy Martin’s Wall of Death world record is one of the coolest things you’ll see today. But if you were wondering how he prepped himself for this event, you should know that he experienced 8Gs but managed not to pass out.

No wonder he has fans around the world, we’re all nutters with atleast one screw loose to follow this guy!
