He quickly realised it was not for him – he was not being paid and was being taught things he either already knew, or thought would never need, and so decided to leave after a month, having secured an apprenticeship as a truck fitter with a Volvo centre, John Hebb Volvo.This was followed by Guy Martin: When You Dead, You Dead, released on 22 October 2015, and covering the previous year in diary format, from the 24-hour Solo World Mountain Bike Championship to the Isle of Man TT.October 2016 saw the release of his latest book, titled "Guy Martin: Worms to Catch" featuring Guy's thoughts on the past year and upcoming challenges.Martin had shown an interest in working on trucks as early as age 12.As a child he was fascinated by engines, and would take apart lawnmowers to try to make them go faster.Martin's first appearances on TV documentaries were on programmes based around his passion for engineering rather than his love of adrenaline sport, The Boat that Guy Built airing on the BBC in 2011, and How Britain Worked on Channel 4 in 2012.
Uncomfortable with presenting to camera or working from a script, his preferred style is to improvise his dialogue, and work by responding to questions from crew off camera, which are designed both to prompt him, as well as keep him focused, and even stop him "rattling on" if necessary.
He was uncertain if the decision would lead him to retire from road racing, mountain bike racing, or if he would go on to do something else, but said "if I do race on the roads it will be with TAS".
Martin signed a new deal with Honda Racing on 18 January 2017 to ride the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2, rekindling his ambition to win the Isle of Man TT and renewing his focus on his road racing career.
Although his interest matched his father's trade, he was happy for Guy to do his own thing, and indeed would try to stop him "talking the whole time about engines" during family holidays to Butlins.
Martin attended Kirmington Church of England Primary School and The Vale Academy school, leaving at age 16.
Martin is also listed as the author of companion books for some of his television shows: How Britain Worked, published on 4 October 2012 In addition to his television and racing activities, Martin has continued to work as a truck fitter.
