New book coming from Guy Martin

Guy Martin, seen here at the 2015 Senior TT event, worked as a diesel mechanic to pay the bills throughout his racing career.

Guy Martin’s been busy in the last year — so busy that he’s writing another book about all his experiences in the last 12 months, titled When You Dead, You Dead.

In the last year, Martin’s got an IOMTT podium, raced bicycles, broke a go-kart speed record in France, worked as a solo TV presenter, had a dramatic wreck at the Dunrod 150 superbike race, and still found time to go to his day job as a truck mechanic.

His blurb on Facebook explains the title this way: “As Guy’s Latvian grandfather frequently reminded him, ‘When you dead, you dead.’ ”

The book comes out October 22, but you can pre-order it at Martin’s web page here. We’ve yet to read Martin’s first book, but it seems quite well-liked on
