Triumph Land Speed Record Team Delays attempt to 2016

Earlier this month, Triumph Motoryclces made an announcement to make an attempt and regain the lost land speed record. Guy Martin was chosen to ride the Triumph and expected to break the last land speed record. Unfortunately, Guy Martin crashed at Ulster Grand Prix and sustained multiple injuries. The Triumph Land Speed Record team has now decided to postpone the attempt to 2016. The team wants to be completely ready when they attempt to break the record.

Triumph official have confirmed the same and said:
“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.”

Wishing the good luck, whenever they attempt.
