With seven TV specials this year, Guy will be visiting the outer limits of human capacity many times over on prime-time Channel 4 but, as his new book reveals, that's only half the story for the Grimsby mechanic with no off switch.
Except for one summer spent sleeping inside a truck in a concrete yard in Northern Ireland, Guy Martin has lived within 20 miles of the Grimsby hospital he was born in, on the 4th November 1981. But that hasn't stopped the professional truck mechanic from winning multiple international road races, plus scoring fifteen Isle of Man TT podiums. Nor has it prevented him from becoming a regular face on prime-time Channel 4, presenting critically acclaimed documentaries and travelogues, as well as his popular returning series Speed with Guy Martin. Did we mention he's also the author of three phenomenal number-one bestselling memoirs? Not bad for a truck fitter.
