Obscure Historical Reference Of The Day

1544

After their car race, Steve downplays Dan’s performance, saying that Dan is no Ranulph Fiennes. The person Steve is referring to is Sir Ranulph Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes, 3rd Baronet OBE, first man to travel by foot to both the north and south poles, as well as participating in numerous other expeditions. Fiennes was also a member of the SAS and an author as well, his biography of Captain Scott is quite good, in my humble opinion.
