Rain stops Guy's record attempt

Land speed attempt delayed

TT ace Guy Martin will have to wait a bit longer before he can have a crack at the world land speed record.

The Lincolnshire racer will ride a specially built Triumph bike at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah to try to smash the current 376.363mph record.

But the Speed Week festival which was due to be held there has been called off after heavy rain washed the salt off the flats.

Triumph says the team remains undaunted – and they’ll be back in Utah later in the month to make the attempt.
