Early end to Superbike TT for Honda Racing after Guy Martin crash

The six-lap Superbike race at the Isle of Man TT came to an early end for Honda Racing and Guy Martin on Sunday afternoon, after a crash on the opening lap saw the team out of contention.

With near-perfect conditions around the 37.73-mile Mountain course the rescheduled race got underway at 2pm. However it wasn’t meant to be after a false neutral caused Martin to crash out of the running at Doran’s Bend, just before the first sector at Glen Helen.

Walking away from the incident, Martin is OK, but has some swelling to his wrist, so sat out of TT Zero practice that evening. With limited track time due to bad weather affecting practice sessions last week, this is another blow to Honda’s TT, where track time for the all-new Fireblade is vital.

The team will now regroup and prepare for Wednesday’s Senior TT practice, ahead of the final blue-riband race on Friday 9th June.
