Guy Martin’s return to the road racing scene took an early spill at the 2017 Tandragee 100 when his Honda collided with that of fellow racer, Paul Jordan, at Marlacoo Corner, on the opening lap of the Superbike Race.
Most importantly neither rider was hurt and as the photographs show it turned into probably the most amicable spill ever with the two guys sitting up, having a chat and a cup of tea.
Paul Jordan even found the light hearted side of the crash a short time later on his Twitter Feed.
So today Guy Matrin wanted to meet me, had to tell him after there is always easier ways to say hello. Both of us were totally fine. 👌🏼 pic.twitter.com/j00bVVClpx

So you have seen the video for yourself, what’s your opinion? Did Guy overlook it a bit and come into the corner too quick? Brakes have an issue? Or maybe just a wee whoopsie? Whatever the reason at least both riders walked away.
