In the search for a more competitive team, Martin joined Hydrex Honda for the 2007 season.
Martin's first appearances on TV documentaries were on programmes based around his passion for engineering rather than his love of adrenaline sport, The Boat that Guy Built airing on the BBC in 2011, and How Britain Worked on Channel 4 in 2012.
Uncomfortable with presenting to camera or working from a script, his preferred style is to improvise his dialogue, and work by responding to questions from crew off camera, which are designed both to prompt him, as well as keep him focused, and even stop him "rattling on" if necessary.
Spellman shot some additional test material of Martin back at home in the summer and the boss of North One television showed the clips to a BBC executive.
Having engaged Andy Spellman as his advisor and agent in 2009, Martin worked with North One TV Producers James Woodroffe and Ewan Keil, as he has done to present day.
Martin attended Kirmington Church of England Primary School and The Vale Academy school, leaving at age 16.
