The crew is piloted by Bradleigh “Skopas” McGregor who drives a BMW E30.

Now this is not just any E30…it’s a V8 that goes by the name of Popeye.

Badcompany initially started out with three stuntmen.

Anele Mbuqe is the roof surfer with the long dreadlocks.

You often see him standing out the sunroof of Popeye as if he were on a surf board.

Riaaz “Rizzo” Davies is often tucked away in the back seat but when the throttle lock goes on he jumps to life.

Rizzo often performs co-pilot function as well so that the stunts can be performed accurately and safely.

Mckeenan “Troubles” du Plessis is the final team member.

In recent years Mckeenan has built his own car.

Now we see Mckeenan on the pitch as a spinner and no longer as a stuntman.
