TV speed star dominates at start of road racing season

Speed sensation Guy Martin retained the Ian Watson Spring Cup yesterday at Oliver’s Mount as the 2014 road racing season revved into action.

He finished almost four seconds in front of his nearest rival in the race of the day at the Scarborough circuit and also took the top podium place in his other two outings.

It was a mixed bag for the area’s local riders as James Cowton was hot on the wheels of Martin taking a couple of podiums himself, while for others it was an early ride home.
