Crazy Dave Goodwin, also know as ‘The Crashman’, is the brains behind Revolution Stunts. A professional Stuntman and adrenalin seeker, working in TV/Film, and Live Action Shows, David was born in Manchester, England and started driving when he was only 7 years old.
David used to drive around his Grandad’s farm where he taught himself basics precision driving. David started racing auto-grass and stock karts in his teens, but never gave up on his childhood dream of becoming a Stuntman. After watching the ‘Monster Truck Show’ at Heaton Park in 1990 Dave was determined to secure himself a place on their team. 12 months down the line, Dave finally found a position on the team became available. He got his first job in the show as the ‘Battering Ram’. This involved lying on the bonnet of a car and being driven head first through a wall of fire.
Since that day Dave has never looked back. He proved himself to be good at the Battering Ram so decided to move on to car crashes. In 1996 he moved to another show in order to further his skills. He joined the ‘Monster Action Stunt Display Team’ which was run by Stunt Coordinator ‘Steve Street Griffiths’ who was the Stunt Coordinator for the film ‘Titanic’. His work with ‘Steve Street (Griffith’s)’ also helped Dave work alongside other shows like the ‘Hollywood Stunt Show’ and the ‘International Thrill Show’. David was trained by Steve in some big crashes like the ‘T-Bone’ which is the most feared crash in the stunt business.
All of Dave’s crashes ARE WITHOUT roll cages and in standard cars. Dave is also trained in precision driving and fire stunts like the ‘Human Torch’, which involves setting himself alight and running around the arena. Dave has toured all around the UK and Europe, and is now, the only UK precision driver to perform on grass. Dave has performed on the film ‘Skin Traffik’ (UK version ‘A Hitman in London’) starring Darryl Hannah, Mickey Rouke, and Eric Roberts. Dave performed all the car stunts for the film. There is more film work planned for 2017 as Stunt Co-ordinator and Stunt Driver.
In 2015 alone Dave completed 91 shows combining 214 crashes, Precision Driving, Fire Stunts and Driver of ‘The Bandit’ and ‘The Slaine’ Monster Trucks. The season culminated with a Triple Car Roll, a T-Bone Crash and he has put cars into parking spaces we can only dream about!
The start of 2016 saw Dave (Revolution) performing with ‘Dantes Stunt Team’ to perform at the ‘Moto GP’ in Assen Holland. Dave has just performed at one of the biggest UK modified car shows, ‘Modified Nationals’ covering 17 stunts in one show ranging from fire to crashes. Dave has also recently completed a Summer Stunt Tour with ‘Scott May’s Daredevil Stunt Show’. David has also planned 2 ‘Guiness World Record’ attempts are lined up for the end of 2019 for ‘Tightest Parallel Park in Reverse’ and tightest shopping bay park.
Revolution Stunts has been enhanced with the addition of Fire, Quad Stunts, Bandit powered buggy, and a Stunt Grandad Act on his high powered Mobility Scooter, Grandad Car and Moped.
