Guy Martin’s hopes in setting another world record have been shattered thanks to some underwater weeds.

The former TT racer was practising in Lincoln’s Brayford Pool yesterday prior to a water speed world record attempt using a human-powered hydrofoil for Channel 4 programme Speed.


MCN photographer Joe Dick, who was at the scene, reported fans were happy to see Guy and thought it was a good morale boost for the area of Lincoln.
