GUY MARTIN has set a new speed record riding the Wall of Death as part of a live Channel 4 television show. 

On his first run, Martin rode his Indian Scout to a best of 70.33mph and eventually upped that to a best of 78.15mph on a custom-made BSA R3 with a Rob North frame. The previous best was 60mph.

The Lincolnshire ace wanted a third run, but scheduling meant there was not enough time left in the programme.
