    Guy Martin , English Isle of Man racer will be piloting the Castrol Rocket. Keen to return the Land Speed record to the UK he reckons. He's mad enough to do it :D

    I'll be there at Bonneville in August for 5 days. I will be crewing for a friends team going for a Thruxton record and also a world record for a ZX14.
    I was hoping the Castrol Rocket was going to be there.
