Crash Man: Martin Schanche.

So he crashed a bit....  in everything from a VW beatle to an Escort RS200.

The now 67 year old Norwegian legend Martin Schanche was six times European Rallycross Champion earning him the title of "Mr. Rallycross", raced Pikes peak and even tried his hand at endurance racing at Le Mans in '87. He crashed.

After his retirement he has tried his had at local politics bringing his trademark style. 

No wonder he inspired this Spinal Tap like totally awesome heavy metal anthem.  Obviously a Norwegian Chuck Norris who produces turds larger than Tanner Foust before his breakfast made out of 30 pound Blocks of Jarlsberg.
