Guy Martin has abandoned plans to attempt a water speed record in Lincoln today (Thursday).

The cancellation is due to the underwater weeds on Brayford Pool, the Channel 4 team said.


This is despite efforts earlier this week by the Brayford Trust to clear some of the overgrown weeds in the water which have had a massive growth spurt due to the recent warm weather.

Guy and the television production team were in Lincoln trialling two hydrofoils in the Brayford Pool.

One hydrofoil has been built by the University of Lincoln, while the other has been built by Mike Cooke from Aardvark Technologies with the propeller supplied by Rupert Wasey from Hercules Propellers. Guy said: “Ta for the support, I look forward to having another crack at it down the line.”
