The TV presenter and self-confessed adrenaline junkie faced forces of 5.2G as he carried out the incredible stunt in a hangar in Lincolnshire.
The 34-year-old was hailed by viewers for not only smashing his previous world record but for having the balls to do it in the first place.
Wow! Big respect for Guy Martin on this massive #WallOfDeath

Ken Fox, Guy’s trainer, compared the stunt to the ‘Colosseum’ saying: ‘You expect to see lions and gladiators.’ And Martin echoed those views, describing the attempt as ‘the toughest thing I’ve ever done.’
The hit series Speed with Guy Martin is returning later this year when he will be hoping to claim a number of other world records including breaking the 200mph barrier in a souped-up Transit van.
Guy wasn’t the only one to break a record either. He was joined by rider Shanaze Reade who broke a world record on the Wall Of Death with a speed of 26mph, one mile over the previous record.
