We enter our 2020 season with continued support from friend of the museum, Guy Martin.  

Guy Martin's collection was the centrepiece of the 2019 season at GTM, and with his continued generosity, 2020 will see some real delights on display!

Having begun his relationship with the GTM in 2011 as the guest of honour at our Motorcycle Convention. Guy has loaned the museum a wide selection of his prized possessions. 

What you can expect to see in 2020....

Guy's first car as a young man was his Saab 96 from 1972, which he purchased for £300 before his career as a TT racer and TV personality began. Unused for 15 years and stored away from public gaze, we're the first museum to display it. It certainly needed cleaning when it arrived! 

His racing bicycle which was featured on his Speed tv series, the very same bike which he rode to break the British Cycle Speed Record by reaching 112mph. Also from Speed is his gravity racer which still holds the world record. 

Back by popular demand is his Merlin Spitfire engine, first shown in the museum in 2016. 

A trio of motorcycles from Guys personal collection join us including a rare Petronas FP1!
