Show Synopsis

Motorcycle racer and lorry mechanic Guy Martin loves pushing the boundaries of speed in search of a buzz. He claims that nothing can match the adrenaline rush he gets when racing on public roads around the Isle of Man TT course at more than 300kph. So now he’s setting out to see if he can find anything that can give him the same kicks.

Guy will seek to find out what makes things go fast by getting his hands dirty in a range of unique engineering projects.
