Guy Martin Takes On The World’s Largest Wall Of Death

Guy Martin is no stranger to taking risks.

The colourful motorcycle racer and TV presenter has competed at the Isle of Man TT 11 times, and was even featured in the 2010 documentary on the race - TT3D: Closer to the Edge.

He was also chosen to pilot the Triumph Rocket Streamliner in a land speed record attempt last year, but the run was postponed after he was injured in a crash at the Ulster GP Superbike race in August.

But Guy’s latest stunt is one of his boldest.

Guy will attempt a record breaking assault on the largest “Wall Of Death” ever built on March 28.

The “Wall Of Death” is a sideshow stunt where riders ride the vertical wall inside a barrel shaped cylinder that’s typically around 6 to 11 metres across.

In England the master of the “Wall” is Ken Fox, and he has trained Guy to ride horizontally on the wall.

But in true Guy Martin style, this “Wall Of Death” is bigger than ever before at 120 ft (36m) diameter.

That means Guy will have to rider at a much faster speed - and the whole stunt is being televised LIVE!

The show will be aired live on Channel4 in the UK on Monday, March 28, at 7:15pm.
