Guy Martin Crashes During The Trial Run At Salt Flats

Written By:

Isle of Man TT star, Guy Martin, crashed during the trial run when he was attempting to reach speeds of 300 mph (482.8 km/h). When he was doing the trial run his Triumph Infor Rocket Streamliner slipped on a damp patch.

Guy escaped the crash uninjured, but his streamliner will undergo several inspections before any further attempts.

As we know, he is there to break the land speed record of motorcycle which is currently held by Rocky Robinson at 376.36 mph (605.69 km/h). Earlier, the record run was postponed because of poor track condition.

Triumph Motorcycle Team stated, "Tricky course conditions at the legendary Bonneville Salt Flats have once again proved challenging during the latest stage of the Triumph Motorcycles Land Speed Record attempt."

Over the summer in practice sessions, Triumph achieved an incredible feat. The motorcycle became the fastest Triumph ever to be made and Guy was able to record a speed of 274.2 mph (441.2 km/h).

Guy has several records under his name including the fastest speed on a gravity-powered snow sled, fastest in a soap box, and highest speed on a wall of death. If the conditions are fine at the Salt Flats, daredevil Guy Martin will have one more record to his name.
