Guy’s Garage: Series Premiere (S1EP1 Channel 4 Mon 22 Nov 2021)



Guy Martin may have made his name as a daredevil motorcycle racer, but he’s never happier than when he’s tinkering with some crazy machine in his garage. Now he’s embarking on one of his most ambitious challenges yet: transforming iconic road vehicles from around Europe into thoroughbred racing machines.

He’ll then pit himself against the best of the best on some of the continent’s most unusual and hair-raising courses. First up, Guy revamps a Volvo, which he intends to take to Sweden to compete in the national motorsport, Folk Racing – a super-competitive rallycross. Guy loves Volvos and already owns two.

With the help of his fellow mechanic Cameron Whitworth – Cammy – Guy strips down a 240 Volvo estate, often dubbed the safest car in the world. It should be a pretty straightforward project for the boys. But the next few months are dogged with issues, errors, explosions and disasters. Finally, after working their way through two cars, three engines, a brace of gearboxes and countless late nights in the garage, the boys make it to Sweden with their Volvo, ready for some folk racing at the Vasteras Motorstadion.
