Guy Martin signs for Wilson Craig’s Honda team

1 of 1

Guy Martin has agreed terms to race for Honda on the roads next year for Irish businessman, Wilson Craig.

The deal allows Martin to virtually run his own team – something he’s always argued works best for him.

Martin told MCN: “I’ll be more of my own boss and that’s how I like it. Wilson puts his money where his mouth is and if he says he’s going to do something – it gets done.

"I’m passionate about racing but not half as much as he is. He works closely with (engine tuner) Chris Mehew and I have massive respect for him too – just look at his results.”

Martin will run a superbike, with the engine built by Mehew, but to Martin’s requirements and a supersport bike built to the same spec as the Parkalgar Honda raced by Eugene Laverty in World Supersport.

Martin said: “We’ll do the big three Internationals, Scarborough, Southern 100, three, maybe four Irish nationals as well as the TT,” said Martin.
