IOMTT: Video of Guy Martin Crashing at Creg Ny Baa Guy Martin fairing IOMTT 635x425

In this morning’s Supersport race, Guy Martin found himself on the wrong end of the pavement at Creg Ny Baa, crashing into the safety barrier after over-shooting the corner. Unscathed, the TT rider was able to restart the race, after Race 1 of Supersport was red flagged for Derek Brien’s unfortunate crash. In the age of digital media, an Isle of Man TT spectator behind the safety fence of course got the crash on film, and has graciously posted it to YouTube for all to see. Check it out after the jump, as maybe a decade ago, this would have been a fatal mistake for the likable Guy Martin. Thanks for the tip John!

    Whoa, he was way off the line drifting it like a stunter… bike looked fine though, wonder why the marshals didn’t let him carry on? He was pretty fortunate that drift didn’t turn into a high side and send him into the crowd over the fence. He lives to ride another race. Poor bugger though, you can tell he’s just bloody sick of not winning. That’s a bad place to be, mentally.

    Just a quick note: Martin is not Manx, he’s English.

  3. Yeah, made that mistake twice last night…this is why articles should not be written at 3am.
