Lincolnshire’s Guy Martin will take on the largest Wall of Death ever made live on TV later this month.
The stunt has been in the planning for a while but suffered a set-back when Martin injured himself in a 130mph off at last year’s Ulster Grand Prix.
The Wall of Death is an epic stunt involving defying gravity to ride a motorcycle around a vertical wall at high speed.
Martin will attempt to take on the largest Wall of Death ever made in front of a live TV audience in a show for Channel 4 presented by Steve Jones.
The programme will also follow Guy’s training, which began over a year ago with his first rather clumsy attempts to ride a wall under the guidance of Britain’s finest Wall of Death rider, Ken Fox. Guy also learns about the science which makes both him and his bike stick to a vertical wall, from Cambridge University professor, Dr Hugh Hunt, and endures a punishing flight in a stunt plane with ex-fighter pilot, Mark Greenfield, where Guy gets to experience the massive G forces he’ll need to contend with.
The show will air Monday 28th March, 7:15pm on Channel 4.
