Today the internet rumour mill is rife, absolutely rife, with ‘news’ that Guy Martin is set to announce his return to the Isle of Man TT Races this year!
Check out this link to DRIVETRIBE which seems to have started it all.
Here’s the basics though :
- Guy Martin may return to the TT in 2017.
- He will most likely be riding a new Honda Fireblade.
- No team has been announced as yet.
- No confirmation of any kind has been made.
- It’s a great rumour.
Personally I think Guy is a legend. I’ve seen him race in Northern Ireland many times and would love to see him at the TT. He wants a TT win so much, no matter how many times he hints at being finished I think the TT win may be his nemesis that he desperately wants to conquer. He would be a massive signing for Honda and their Fireblade which has been met with mixed reviews from the public, put Guy Martin on one and it becomes an instant success story.
I’ve read a few different things and I think come Wednesday / Thursday some form of official (as official as Guy does) may appear.
Until then. Fingers crossed.
