A Guernsey businessman who nearly died a year ago in a high speed motorbike crash is gearing up to compete again this weekend.

Entrepreneur Zef Eisenberg is returning to North Yorkshire to the same track where he came off his turbine bike last year. He broke 11 bones at Elvington Airfield while trying to set a land speed record.

Mr Eisenberg told ITV News that this weekend's races are about overcoming emotion rather than breaking records. He aims to break 200 mph but his personal best is 234 mph.

However the Guernsey daredevil hopes to be the fastest on the sand when he heads to Pendine Sands in Wales a week tomorrow (Saturday 23rd September).
