Taking to the venue’s parking lot, veteran stuntmen Enrico Schoeman and The Citizen’s André de Kock performed fire stunts that had spectators on their feet. Schoeman, right, was set alight, after which he rode a Gold Rand Harley-Davidson through two fire tunnels and a burning notice board. Straight afterwards, De Kock crashed a burning car through a pyramid of burning car wrecks.

Both the rider and the driver escaped unscathed, but they left the parking lot slightly the worse for wear.

De Kock, 65, and Schoeman, 61, are the country’s two longest surviving stuntmen, having been involved with fire risks for the past 42 years. The pair hold the current Guinness World Record for the longest motorcycle ride through a tunnel of fire, at 120 metres.

They have recently been mandated to tackle the official Guinness World Record for riding a quadbike through a fire tunnel.

The record attempt is scheduled to take place at next year’s Wonderboom Airport Adrenaline Show on July 2.
