The Ron Hull Group of Companies recently sponsored Guy Martin, who came 2nd in the Senior Race of the Isle of Mans TT this year.
In the post race press conference Martin said “I’m a bit shy of all this attention. I’ve hid in a lock up in the back of Douglas to keep out of the way, but there’s been all these people wanting me signing stuff. And then I’m out on the track and there’s all these folk shouting so loud I can hear them through my earplugs. I right appreciate it. Its crackers.”
Martin’s pace in the opening two laps were stunning and he held a 4.15s advantage going into the pit stops at the end of the second lap, but had only two seconds going out into the third lap.
Martin goes back to life as a truck fitter having had a great TT with three third places. This year’s Senior was probably his best-ever TT performance and proved how competitive the Suzuki GSX-R1000 can be at the TT against the all-conquering Hondas.
Congratulations Guy, from all here at the Ron Hull Group!
