Guy Martin not retiring, but no further plans to race with Honda

TT star Guy Martin insists he hasn't given up on road racing following reports he plans to retire.

The Lincolnshire rider returned to TT with Honda this year, but a crash in the Superbike race prevented him competing in the Senior TT, while Honda also withdrew him from the upcoming Ulster Grand Prix.

Following reports Martin will retire from road racing, the 35-year-old issued a statement through his Facebook page, saying he's not given up on racing or road racing.

However, Martin described this year's TT as a disaster, while adding he didn't join Honda to develop a bike, having expected to be given a machine capable of winning races.

The 16-time TT podium finisher did confirm that he won't be taking part in any further road racing events with Honda this year.
