Guy Martin was racing last Friday on the Isle of Man TT course and was doing quite well with a registered average speed of 131.108mph during the first lap at Glen Vine. But the Senior TT race was to come to a sudden end for the highly experienced rider and his Honda CBR1000RR due to a 150mph crash that ended up generating this immense fireball. The incident happened during Guy’s third lap on a fast left/right section of the course and the race had to be red flagged.

As a result of the crash, Guy Martin is now in the hospital recovering from his broken ribs, bruised lungs, twisted ankles and fractured vertebrae. That’s nothing considering the speed at which the crash took place and also two key factors that kept Guy alive consist in him separating from the bike early in the crash and wearing the D-Air airbag-equipped leather suit. He’ll be back on its feet soon.

Oh, that was a sad ending for Guy Martin. I am glad that Martin is fine after that incident. As I’ve said, take extra precautions.

What a waste, the bike’s really good at straight ways but it suddenly crashes.

I hope he gets better soon, the bike’s totally wrecked.
