Crowds have gathered around Brayford Wharf in Lincoln to cheer on TV adrenaline junkie Guy Martin, as he prepares for a new world record attempt.
Lincolnshire’s own famous daredevil will take to the River Witham on a specially made hydrofoil, which is a boat which has its hull out of the water for greater speed.
Guy will be rehearsing the record attempt throughout the afternoon of Wednesday, July 27, zooming through the centre of the city.
The official attempt will be made on the Brayford on Thursday, July 28, and will be filmed by Channel 4 crews for his new series Speed with Guy Martin.
