Over the course of several years, he has stood on the podium 17 times in TT races. He had a racing accident at both the 2010 TT and the 2015 Ulster Grand Prix that broke his back.
In August 2017, Martin joined the pit crew for Williams’ Formula 1 car at the Belgian Grand Prix. Martin returned to road racing in May 2019 at the Tandragee 100 in Northern Ireland. Martin was the main character in the 2011 film Closer to the Edge, which was about TT racing.

Guy Martin has autism?
Autism includes Asperger’s Syndrome. Guy Martin, who used to race motorcycles and work on heavy vehicles and is now a TV personality, hasn’t tried to hide the fact that he has.
Martin says his diagnosis is “a bunch of nonsense”. That means he thinks it’s all nonsense, but it helped him figure out why he’s acting the way he does. But some people with Asperger’s are very focused, persistent, good at spotting patterns, and pay close attention to the details.
Guy Martin said his girlfriend made him go to the clinic for a check-up. When his girlfriend told him he had to go, he finally decided to have someone watch him.
Guy Martin was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome in 2021 after his girlfriend persuaded him to see a psychologist.
