Dave Goodwin, also know as ‘The Crashman’, is the brains behind Revolution Stunts. A professional Stuntman, working in TV/Film, and Live Action Shows, David was born in Manchester, England and started driving when he was only 7 years old on his Grandads farm.
David then 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’.
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 all round stunt performer. 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.
