  • PSA Guy Martin on C4 now
  • Didn’t actually watch it but ill bet some of the haterz watch other inane drivel, like Celebrity get me out of here for instance. I’d rather watch GM fly about in a daft tractor. (That isn’t a real tractor)

    Started watching it, found it all a bit dull, as mentioned constant recaps and find GM a bit tedious now.

    I did wonder during the program, especially when they had the Guinness world record adjudicator along, what constitutes a tractor vs just another vehicle with a large engine. Does it need to be able to do tractor stuff like pull trailers etc?

    I was more interested this in relation to the American tractor – that seemed to have car sized wheels on the back! Though it sounded like their ‘record’ was totally unofficial so I guess they could do what they wanted.

    Anybody watching Guy in Japan now.

    That underground water tank 😲

    Err..not much actually, knowing this lot.
    Anyway… a Fastrac is actually a tractor. (Originally)
    But most people on here should really despise a JCB.

    The Japan programme is a must watch.

    Inspired by the sewer level from the original Mirror’s Edge game. 🙂

    Think Guy visiting other places works better than Guy makes something aerodynamic and puts a more powerful engine in it.

    Can someone please tell the voiceover bloke that he’s not doing a trailer for the latest zombie apocalypse gorefest movie. Ta.

    That was good (voiceover dude excepted, as above). 🙂

    Liked the Japan program more than the tractor one – even more I should say. Part 2 is on next week I assume? Some quite comical bit in there, particularly
    ‘Guy is taught to feel around the walls until he finds a door out’
    *immediately smacks head on corner*

    Definite lack of Terrahawk though. They usually manage to shoe-horn a clip of him in somewhere!

    Finished the Japan episode. That motorbike bloke who raced Guy was just about the coolest dude I’ve ever seen on telly. 🙂

    Yeah? Why’s that, then? Enquiring minds want to know.

    Looking forward to that one. In the film Steve McQueen stole a motorbike off a German soldier to make his escape on. It was a Triumph, because Steve liked them. The story behind the bike: https://www.motoringresearch.com/car-news/steve-mcqueen-bike-the-great-escape-salon-prive/

    Anyone any idea on this? The modded JCB didn’t look like it could tow anything

    Who’s – Guy Martin’s, Jase’s or Steve McQueen’s? ;0)

    Is it an urban myth* that Steve McQueen showed the film stuntman how to perform the jump when no-one was looking?

    *Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

    I’m thinking it might be something to do with obtaining a race licence for the bikes
