Speed with Guy Martin Hovercraft (2013– ) Online
Motorcycle racer and mechanic Guy Martin tries to break the world speed record for a hovercraft. However, hovercraft are notoriously unstable at speed, and Guy is out of his comfort zone on the water. Guy has a steep learning to understand the handling of the hovercraft whilst he tries to push the boundaries of speed on the water.
The record attempt was filmed at Galloway Activity Centre on Loch Ken, nr Parton, Castle Douglas, Kirkcudbrightshire, south west Scotland.
Guy failed in his ultimate goal of breaking the 85.87 mph world record set in 1995, but broke the British hovercraft speed record - clocking an average speed of 75.21 mph over 2 one kilometre runs. His top speed was clocked at 79.18 mph.
