England seems to specialise in breeding daredevils.
Lawrence of Arabia, Donald Campbell, Scott of the Antarctic, Eddie the Eagle, and now Guy Martin; to name but a few.
I really know very little about Guy Martin other than he's a pro' motor bike racer; what I do know, however, is that he's fearless, incomprehensible (he needs subtitles), and totally nuts. Anything that goes very very fast, he'll have a go at.
He has a TV programme called 'Speed with Guy Martin' which is certainly worth watching; if you enjoy such things.
