So what do I get to do on a stunt driving experience?

As you’d expect, the details do vary with the experience you buy. And in general the more you pay the longer you’ll have in the car and the more stunts you’ll be able to master. So it’s important to check out the detail of what you’re buying.

To give you an idea, I’ll run through what happens on my recommended stunt experience – the Paul Swift Ultimate.
Just in case you don’t know of him, Paul Swift is a seven times British Motorsport champion, and one of the stunt drivers on the TV show Top Gear, so he knows what he’s doing. You can see his Wikipedia page here. Paul set up stunt training schools up and down the country to make sure that only the best tuition is offered by the best professionals, so you can be sure you’ll get taught the right way, the safe way, by some of the best in the business.

First you’ve got to be at least 17 and hold a valid driving licence – so this course is only for people who can already do the basics in driving.
Your experience will last between two and three hours, so you’ll get plenty of time behind the wheel and every chance to push yourself to the limit. And you’ll be amazed just how much you can manage to learn.

You’ll get full-on one-to-one tuition in a quality sports car and learn some of the coolest stunt driving manoeuvres you’ve seen.

  • There’s the donut (or doughnut if you’re British!) where with engine screaming, the car just spins round and round and round – see the video at the bottom of the page if you don’t know what I mean.
  • Then there’s the J turn. This is the one where the hero is driving down an alley and finds the bad guys blocking his way. Flat out in reverse, swing the wheel, into first and turn in your own length the drive out the way you came in. Sounds easy? Well with Paul Swift teaching, it is, but boy does it feel hairy and look very very impressive!
  • And then of course there’s drifting – you’ll learn how to drift the car in ways you never thought possible and ways that the normal road car certainly wasn’t designed for.
  • Handbrake turns? Yes, that’s where the handbrake plays a vital part in stopping the car going where it wants to go and making it go where you want it to go.

You’ll get to ride shotgun with a pro at the wheel round the test track to see how it should be done and test your nerve. And of course you’ll get a turn at the wheel yourself against the clock to see how you compare. Will you top the leader board? Will you win the prize for the day’s fastest driver? There’s even a head to head race to put a bit more spice into it, as if it wasn’t hot enough already.

And before you leave, you’ll get a certificate to take home and celebrate your achievement.

You’re welcome to take spectators along with you to cheer you on, take pictures and wish they were driving with you. There are refreshments available at all the locations, and plenty of action to keep them enthralled so they’re not likely to get bored. It’s not at all unusual for people to buy this experience and enjoy it so much they go back for more.

A great gift for a driver you know

And don’t forget, this isn’t all about you. You’re bound to know somebody who’s keen on driving, even thinks they’re a good driver, who would just love this chance to learn first hand how to do the stunts and tricks they’ve seen so often on TV and in the cinema. So the next time you’re looking to buy a birthday or Christmas present, an anniversary gift, even a Valentine present for that special someone, just imagine the look on their face as they realise that this year you’re not giving them the usual boring stuff but this experience day that will live with them for years and years to come.

Or even better, buy two and go with them. That’ll give you the best of both worlds – giving a fantastic present and getting the benefit yourself too!

And this isn’t just for men. Today, women can admit that they enjoy thrills and fast driving just as much as the men do.
Go on! You know it makes sense.

And just in case you’ve never seen a donut (not the kind with a hole in it or filled with jam though they’re both delicious), then check out this video from Youtube where a guy has just learnt how to do them. But don’t try this at home!
