Guy Martin vs The World of Physics

Record addict Guy Martin will be at the Bonneville Salt Flats later this month for a Triumph-backed attempt on the motorcycle land speed record.

The Infor Rocket streamliner is the latest in a 60-year history of Triumph velocitubes to contest the record in Utah. With around 1000bhp from two turbo-charged Rocket III engines on hand, Guy will be looking to top the the 376mph record that's been held by Californian Rocky Robinson since he piloted the twin Suzuki Hayabusa-powered Ack Attack to glory in 2010.

Rumours of tea-making facilities built into a compartment behind the cockpit have yet to be quashed by Triumph officials.

Here's a video of Guy meeting the Infor Rocket for the first time. The attempt will be shown by the UK's Channel Four, though no air-date has yet been set. MP
