Guy is without question the Isle of Man TT’s most popular competitor. With that comes unprecedented media attention, which is something he admittedly struggles with.
This short film gives us an exclusive insight into the man behind the leathers. For the first time, we see how Guy switches off to concentrate solely on racing at the most dangerous event in the world. While fellow rivals lap up the adulation back at the paddock with the fans, Guy strives for peace and tranquillity in his own unique way - painting a neighbour’s house!
Guy’s daredevil nature contrasts hugely with the satisfaction he gets from carrying out what others may perceive to be a mundane task. Only Guy is capable of drawing a parallel between the two. It’s all about preparation, precision and flow.
