Watch Guy Martin's crash at Dundrod

Motorcyclist Guy Martin still wants to race but will not be rushed into making a comeback.

The 33-year-old suffered several broken bones after suffering an accident while leading the Dundrod 150 Superbike race in August.

The TT racer and television personality, who has returned to work as a truck fitter, is now recovering.

"I still want to race, but I'm not going to rush into deciding what or where I'm going to race," Martin said.

"Having a few days off work gave me time to think about what I want to do, and realise all the things that have had to go on hold."

Martin ponders future after crash

Martin says he does not remember anything about the crash at Dundrod on 6 August.

He lost control of his Tyco BMW at Ireland's Corner on the circuit as he was leading the Superbike race by less than a second from Bruce Anstey.

"I headbutted the ground at 130mph, then skidded into a dirt field and catapulted off a few things," Martin added.

"The impact I hit the ground with was massive.

"I broke five vertebrae and they had to rod my spine because I broke my sternum too. I broke five ribs and two metacarpals in right hand, too, and my hand's been plated.

"There's no better physio than working on trucks and I know when I'm doing too much, I'm not planning to do anything that puts the recovery back."
