I've always found this guy to be so intriguing...from what I can tell, he seems like a pretty humble and honest to goodness guy who love all that he does, and then I came across this video and just thought I'd share it here because the Ghetto folks seem to be the few who would appreciate this kind of chap. I know nothing about motors (pretty close to nothing), but his love of the mechanics of things is really inspiring. ...sorry if this video is old hat, but I just discovered it and thought I'd share.

I've not seen that one. Great video. You should check out his show "Speed". He gets up to all kinds of crazy stuff. Worth a look.

Thanks Beetle..It's on my list of things to watch now. Granted, half the time I can't understand what he's saying but I still love it and smile just the same. Much obliged.

'Guy Martin and the Wall of Death' is also a good un.

What's left of England is encapsulated in that man.

He may only know be finding the humor in running the motor to 2800RPM and having it take off in the work shop... but I found it fooking Hilarious straight away.

Considering how high he was reving, and that it's bolted to a trailer, yeah, half expected it to start taking off.

I love the F1 video. I thought it funny Jenson Button commenting on how brave he is. Guy made a name for himself racing the Isle of Mann TT and you think he's got some guts for pushing an old F1 car around Silverstone. Like to see Jenson follow him around the TT course and then well talk about some balls. Although he does say at the start his are small so maybe he is just gutsy.
