Guy Martin to race at Weston Beach Race and become a father…possibly today!


Last month, when at the Goodwood Revival, we couldn’t help notice that Guy Martin’s girlfriend, Sharon Comiskey, is heavily pregnant. After a little research, it turns out she is due today!

The 35-year old lorry mechanic/TT racer/daredevil/TV host/F1 mechanic/engineering fanatic from Lincolnshire confirmed in an interview with the Grimsby Telegraph that he and his girlfriend are expecting a baby girl.

He joked: “So long as she is a better welder than me, I am happy.”

Prior to racing an MV Agusta in the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy race at the Goodwood Revival event in early September, Guy was spotted leaving the rider’s briefing with the then 35-week pregnant Sharon, who had used her personal Twitter account back on 25th May to celebrate ’20 Weeks Down, 20 Weeks To Go’.

Even though he’s due to become a dad any day, it’s not stopped Martin taking part in the Weston Beach Race this weekend (13-15 October). He’s due to race in the solo class before joining four-time World Enduro Champion, David Knight MBE, in the two-man quad class on a 1000cc twin by Polaris UK for the three-hour event.

Although this means that should Sharon go in to labour this weekend then Guy will have a 250-mile journey to negotiate to get back to Grimsby in time.

We send Guy and Sharon our congratulations and very best wishes but will be as intrigued as to what name they give Little Miss Martin – what would you propose?
