Guy Martin’s new TV show

ROAD RACE hero Guy Martin has started filming his second TV series which will show on Channel 4 next year.

The show, which has a working title of ‘Guy Martin Building Britain’ is set to be shown on Channel 4 next year.

The new show follows on from Martin’s successful TV show which aired on the BBC last year entitled the Boat That Guy Built. Martin also starred in the incredible TT3D – Closer to the Edge which is set for DVD release on November 28th.

Although no bikes are involved in the new series, as Guy Martin is biking’s very own Fred Dibnar, we thought we’d let you know about it.

The series celebrates six different wonders of the Industrial Revolution - the railways, the factories, the docks, the mines, the garden and the holiday.

In each episode, Martin, who races a Suzuki GSX-R1000 for TAS Suzuki, and splits his time between working as a lorry mechanic and pursuing a TV career, will help a team of volunteers restore a major machine or building from the period to its former glory.

Executive producer James Woodroffe said: "Barely a day's filming passes where he's not covered from head to toe in soot, grime and grease and he's loving every second of it. We've had him genuinely working inside the claustrophobic firebox of a loco, straining to single-handedly move a two tonne train wheel and even eating candles, the emergency food rations of trapped Victorian miners. It's a delight to work with him and as the production continues one thing is becoming increasingly apparent: he's making graft cool again."
