Video: This is the Best Contract Announcement Ever – Guy Martin Re-Signs with Tyco Suzuki for 2014

When it comes to turning the contract season into as arduous of a process as possible, the MotoGP Championship is king. The silly season seems to stretch from Qatar to Valencia, and we’re sure that if we checked at the time of this posting, we could find some intrigue for contracts in 2016. Oy vey.

That’s not how Guy Martin rolls though. If you didn’t know that the truck mechanic, and sometimes TT racer, beats to the sound of his own drum, well…then you probably didn’t know jack about the man from Lincolnshire to begin with.

It seems Martin is just starting to get wind of this whole internet thing, and found out that people were talking about him on it. This lead to his revelation that people were also talking about where he was racing for the 2014 season, and that just did not sit well with Mr. Martin.

Putting rumors to a dead-stop, Guy took matters into his own hands. Long story short, he’s with the TAS Suzuki boys (and girls) for next season, and believes he’ll be on the necessary package to find his elusive first Isle of Man TT race win.

If you don’t speak mouth-full-of-marbles, you might have to watch the video after the jump more than once — it might be the best contract announcement we’ve ever seen.

    God imagine when he’s an old man telling stories of his TT exploits!

    So far actually, its been illusive – based on or having the nature of an illusion. Hope he makes it reall this time around.

    wait, that was in English?

    Every time I watch a Guy Martin video, I think of this character:

    I kinda hoped he’d knock on the door, say “oy Bob, fancy payin’ me fair ta roid forya next year? Roit, see ya.”

  7. tcrook21 says:

    Why was he speaking Japanese?

  8. Antihero says:

    Take a guy who’s difficult to understand, then mix in really loud annoying electronic music to make it extra frustrating. Nice.

  9. Norm G. says:

    while he was actually irish, joey was the exact same way. If you caught 2 of every 10 words you could figure out what the hell he was saying. LOL

  10. Ken C. says:

    Dafuck he just say?

    Well, he looked happy saying it, so that’s all that matters.

  11. Gutterslob says:

    How many years has he been spotting that same pair of shorts now?

  12. Silas says:

    Gutterslob, I was going to post the exact same thing. In 2011, John McGuinness commented on them so I’m thinking he’s been wearing them for at least 4 or 5 years but that’s every day and some nights too.

    Guy Martin’s mother and sister……

  14. Harry Paratestes says:

    The helmet painted like a Britten with Guy’s skull and crossed wrenches?!?!?!? WANT!!!!!

  15. twoversion says:

    for the people who only hear about how he always loses at the TT, this just happened

    “Guy Martin clinched a Ulster Grand Prix treble as he won both Superbike races and also took a Supersport victory to bring his Dundrod career haul up to 11.”
