Description

"Speed and danger don't always go together, but it's proper fun when they do." (Guy Martin). Truck fitter, ace racer, daredevil, speed junkie, all-round "character", Guy Martin is just a normal guy, driven to succeed by a passion for speed, whether it is on his daily 20-mile cycle to work - his exploits on the track and for television are extra-curricular and he always makes up for his time away - or on his collection of prized motorcycles. Renowned for a loveable if scattergun personality, Guy is a down-to-earth hero, a modern-day celebrity motivated not by wealth and fame, but by his love of his bikes and trucks. He considers his biggest successes in life are not his race wins or his celebrity status - but his truck MOT pass rates! Guy Martin: Portrait of a Bike Legend charts his eventful life in pictures and recounts Guy's career in front and away from the spotlight. It is the first illustrated biography of a man who doesn't do things by half - if it's not a challenge to life, limb and sanity, then he isn't interested.
