We enter our 2019 season with continued support from friend of the museum, Guy Martin.
Guy Martin's collection was the centrepiece of the 2018 season at GTM, and with his continued generosity, 2019 will see some real delights on display!
Having begun his relationship with the GTM in 2016 with the loan of several TT racing motorbikes, we are excited to bring you a renewed 2019 collection.
What you can expect to see...
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.
Back by popular demand is his Merlin Spitfire engine, first shown in the museum in 2016.
While most believe that a van is a cumbersome and slow machine, Guy's 'Speed Transit' bucks the trend! It's appeared in many of his TV shows and last year Guy set the van lap record at the Nürburgring in Germany . It's lined up with his Saab, offering visitors fantastic photo opportunities!
