(GUY MARTIN vs The FASTEST WOMAN in the World)

The search is on to find Ireland’s Fastest Drivers & Riders.

GUY MARTIN vs The Fastest Woman in the World

Road Racing star Guy Martin has confirmed that he will be piloting a Suzuki Hayabusa Turbo in the upcoming ROAD RACING IRELAND ‘North West Speed Trials’ in Ballykelly on 11/12th May.
Always the thrill seeker, Guy keeps in shape as a keen Downhill Mountain Bike Racer and it will be in the pursuit of the ultimate thrill as he climbs aboard the Holeshot Racing machine. The sole intention of the exercise is simple; to go faster than he has ever gone before, and he has some fierce opposition from within the team at Holeshot Racing:

Jo Stevenson – The World’s Fastest Woman @ 243.5 Mph

At a Speed event in 2012, Jo recorded four speeds between 226 and 239mph – riding a turbo bike loaned by Holeshot Racing – before beating the 241.48mph set by Canadian Trillium Muir.
Jo, who is mum to Ella, 12, said of her achievement: “It hasn’t really sunk in and I still can’t quite believe I’ve done it. I will definitely try again and breaking 250mph would be a dream. I am very excited about coming over and racing in Ireland. It looks like this is going to be a great weekend”.

Jack Frost – UK Land Speed Record Holder @ 257.4 Mph

As Holeshot Team Leader, Jack is fortunate enough to have 2 high speed turbo Hayabusa bikes. His number one bike holds the UK Land Speed Record, back to back 257mph and 271mph on a one way top speed run. His number 2 bike has done 248mph. These are the mighty steeds that will also carry Guy Martin and Jo Stevenson to new highs at the North West Speed Trials.
