GUY MARTIN RACES IN THE DIRT AND HONORS MIKE HAILWOOD’S MEMORY IN A FULL-ON MOTORSPORTS WEEKEND

Motorcycle enthusiasts lucky enough to attend the Dirtquake festival last weekend might have come across two very special guests taking part in the event: Dainese Crew’s iconic rider Guy Martin, and 4-time SBK World Champion Carl Fogarty.
 
The two riders raced on Saturday in the maverick event held in King’s Lynn, England, respectively on a Krazy Horse Custom Chopper and on a Triumph. The festival’s trademark style involved as usual no rules and no traditional safety gear, with participants allowed to ride even the most bizarre two-wheeled motor vehicles, as long as they were road-legal.
 
The race unfortunately did not end well for Carl Fogarty, who crashed in the Sunday final and is now recovering – we wish the mighty Foggy to get well really soon!
 
On Sunday, Guy Martin had the chance to make one of his dreams come true, by riding Mike Hailwood’s Honda 6 replica model at Castle Combe circuit, in a parade of classic bikes held in memory of the legendary “Mike the Bike”.
