TT Racer Guy Martin Tries Hydroplane Record

Gotta love TT racer Guy Martin
. Animated, outspoken, with a personality as recognizable as his big sideburns, Martin is known for always pushing the boundaries.
His latest endeavor is a series he’s shooting with Channel 4 out of the UK called “SPEED with Guy Martin” where he “undertakes a series of speed-based challenges, exploring the boundaries of physics and learning about the science of speed.” This includes pedaling a bicycle at 112.94 mph behind the slipstream of a truck and trying to set the world record for riding a motorcycle across water. So, with the “help of a Cambridge professor and a team of marine engineers," Guy attempts the stunt on a dirt bike. Enjoy the results in the video below.
