Guy Martin Drives Aston Martin at ‘180MPH’ on Isle Of Man, Police Raise An Eyebrow
Guy Martin has been at it again…
The professional speed freak has suggested that he hit a heady 180mph through a village on the Isle of Man’s fearsome TT course.
The vehicle he achieved this bonkers speed in was a new Aston Martin Vanquish– not the worst car to be thrashing around some world-famous roads.
Unluckily for Guy, having boasted at the achievement in his Sunday Times review of the car, the Police soon cottoned on and have started up an investigation into the TT rider’s antics.
Martin doesn’t confirm whether or not the public roads that make up the course were indeed closed or not – but given that TT season starts in June, and his review was published in early April, it seems likely they were still open and speed limit-enforced.
Still, we’re sure Guy will use his typical northern charm to wriggle his way out of any trouble…
