We hope you’ve enjoyed our selection of Norfolk Legends, some who left us years ago and some who are still among us. We now ask you to celebrate a Norfolk Legend of your own, someone you know that goes that extra mile for people, someone who is passionate about what they do and tend to carry out their good work under the radar. Now it’s time to recognise them. If you know someone just like this nominate them  here now

Martin began his career at the age of 12, competing in grass track racing in the Norfolk village of Pott Row. By 1979 he'd started his single seater racing in Formula Ford. During this time he also raced BMW cars after a chance letter he sent to Tom Walkinshaw, asking him if he could race one of his cars. Tom agreed and Martin lined up against many international drivers at Snetterton and after an epic race came in second. He went onto win the BMW Championship in 1980, he then partnered Stirling Moss in the TWR-run BP/Audi team during the 1981 British saloon Car Championship season. In 1982 he moved up to formula three and won the Grovewood Award as the most promising driver. Martin's career really took off in 1983 when he was matched against Ayrton Senna in the British F3 Championship, their duel made it the best F3 series in history. Senna won but they were  both  offered his Formula One entry the following season.
