The bravest stunt ever: Lez Bromfield driving John Wilson the well known sports car driver on the roof dreesed only in his underpants and crash

helmet. ( Its true!) holding on with his bare hands as the car smashes through a wall of fire. John’s right bare leg can be clearly seen sticking

out the rear of the picture! The bravest (not the smartest stunt) ever seen in PMB. John was treated for minor burns of neck and other body parts.
