Jason tweeted about the new show that sees him driving around Mzansi in a minibus taxi in search of challenges that will take himself out of his seemingly non-existent comfort zone as he flies, drives, rides, and drifts into the mad world of motorsport. All the while having a laugh and being scared senseless.

Pat even allows Jason to take the flight controls of the GB1 Game Bird plane. It's certainly an experience all three won't forget.

Goliath adds:

“Pat is a real life Tony Stark! The guy is calm, calculated and surprisingly funny! My experience in Red Bull One with him is seared into the back of my mind forever!”
