The Straightliners Top Speed Tuesday event has been an incredible meeting at Elvington Airfield as the UKTA timed event witnessed some incredible racing. Jack Frosts Holeshot Racing prepared bike for Guy Martin saw the star of TT racing set a blistering and perfect run down Runway TWO SIX aboard the Turbo powered Suzuki Hayabusa.

Guy was as cool as a cucumber, as to be expected for the TT legend, as he took the bike up to top speed and run the speed trap at 270.9mph, setting him 2nd in the world. Trevor Duckworth said Guy was absolutely pin point perfect down the runway and kept the bike pinned right through the speed trap and his bike skills showed in abundance as he casually brought the Holeshot bike to a controlled exit speed.

Guy was said to be very pleased and Jack Frost was elated that all the work he and Guy had put into the bike has come to fruition. A well deserved record for Holeshot since Jacks recovery after his van and bikes were stolen and burned a few years ago.
