We’ve just been sent this from Triumph’s office. Not entirely a surprise, but we still feel sad for the lad. It’s a better situation that he gets well and then goes to bag the record for Blighty with Triumph in that 1000bhp Streamliner missile though…

Here’s what Triumph has sent us:
In the light of Guy Martin’s crash at Ulster Grand Prix last week, and the injuries he sustained, the Triumph Land Speed Record team has confirmed its decision to postpone the planned attempt until 2016 so that the Lincolnshire racer can be fully fit for the record run. Triumph has released the following statement:
“We’re obviously concerned with the news that Guy has sustained injuries as a result of his crash in last week’s Dundrod 150 race. While in true form, Guy has signed himself out of hospital this week, we all feel that given his injuries it won’t be possible to complete the required testing prior to attempting to take the record this year.
“Guy is a unique talent and having such a pilot for our Rocket motorcycle is absolutely central to our attempt. We wish him a full and speedy recovery and will confirm a new date for our 2016 bid as soon as we can.”
