Few sports personalities achieve recognition outside of the enthusiast following for their chosen sport, which makes road-racer Guy Martin something of a phenomenon; indeed, not since Barry Sheene back in the late 1970s has there been a British motorcyclist with a higher public profile. Guy first came to the attention of the wider public following the release in 2011 of the film 'Closer to the Edge' a documentary about the 2010 Isle of Man TT races. That was the year Guy experienced one of his more spectacular crashes when he parted company with his Honda Fireblade at super-fast Ballagarey, the bike exploding in a horrifying ball of flame. Guy has since gone on to become one of the more unlikely stars of British television, fronting a hugely successful series of documentaries with a technological and/or record-breaking theme.

Guy had been racing for the Ireland-based Wilson Craig team in 2010, having been with Sean Muir Racing (SMR) for the preceding three seasons. He had signed for SMR at the end of 2006 to ride the team's Hydrex-sponsored Honda Fireblades in the 'big' classes and the Honda CBB600RR in the Supersport category.

The Fireblade offered here was used by Guy during the 2008 and 2009 seasons, a time when he was still competing in the British Superbike Championship as well as on his favourite road courses. Guy rode this machine in the Superstock category, a class that severely limits the modifications that can be made to an otherwise standard motorcycle. His most notable results over the course of these two seasons were 3rd in the 2008 Isle of Man Superstock TT; 2nd in the 2009 Superstock TT; and 4th in the 2009 Ulster Grand Prix Superstock race.

The machine was purchased by the current vendor in 2014 and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by SMR Hydrex Honda Chief Engineer, Mick Shanley. The history file also contains sundry invoices, the 2014 purchase receipt, selected photographs, and a quantity of 'Guy Martin' stickers. Some Goodridge brakes hoses and fittings are included in the sale.
