“It’s been a great week at Dundrod and it’s always the job to win the main Ulster Grand Prix Superbike race. I did my best in the second Superbike race to also take the win but if you’re going to win one at Dundrod, the main race is the most important. No one comes to win the ‘B race do they? The bikes worked superbly today, so thanks to the boys and also to Pirelli who put in a big effort this week. It’s nice to reward them with the main race win. Man of the Meeting is a bonus, but a great week overall.” – Guy Martin (read the full article on the Tyco Suzuki site…)

Phil Wain PRESS RELEASE – Guy Martin
Kirmington’s Guy Martin returned to racing in style at the Ulster Grand Prix Bike Week and although he was unable to add to his tally of wins around the Dundrod circuit, the Wilson Craig Honda rider was in contention in every one of his six races and finished in the top six in each, an impressive statistic given he’d only had one previous outing since his horrific TT crash back in early June.
Just got this in from ace PR man and Guy’s good friend, Phil Wain.
I went to see Guy yesterday but, unfortunately, was unable to get a chat with him as he was being assessed by the doctors at the time but I did have a good chat with his mum, sister and girlfriend and he’s doing fine although he realises what a lucky escape he’s had.
His mum said that he may have actually punctured his lung and so was having a chest drain fitted yesterday morning to aid with the recovery – Guy, of course, wanted to come out yesterday!! He has damaged a couple of vertabrae in his back but is able to sit up in bed and ensure that copious amounts of tea can be drunk. He also lost some skin off his bum and legs as he slid down the road but this was quite superficial and the Dainese leathers did a superb job in preventing this from being worse.
I got a couple of text messages off him this morning and he hopes to be out in 2-3 days – he’s extremely grateful to all the kind messages of support and well wishes he’s received.
