Come on, tell me honestly, haven't you always wanted to bring out your inner speed-demon and pull a massive hand brake turn when you pull up in the drive way? You know you want to!
I do! I would love to be able to drive Jason Bourne style through the streets of Europe, or Brisbane for that matter, but somehow I don't think it will go over that well with the kind police officer who pulls me up, "Ma'am, what do you think you're doing?" "I'm sorry officer, I just really, really wanted to try it."

Well, now you can Ultimate Stunt Driving has pulled a perfect 2 wheeler and landed in Brisbane, and now you can safely, thrillingly, and legally, learn to drive like a pro! Even my prim-and-proper Librarian mother would like to give a 360 degree spin a go, who wouldn't? What about a ramp to ramp jump?

The Ultimate Stunt Driving experience gives you 1½ hours at the wheel of a Mini Cooper and a fully trained, friendly professional with years of experience by your side - 180 degree handbrake turns, multiple 360 degree spins on a specially designed motorkhana course, and riding on 2 wheels!
Ultimate Stunt Driving (formerly Sydney Stunt Driving School) revved up in 2009 and is run by V8 Supercar drivers Dean Canto and Luke Youlden. Along with Dean & Luke, Ultimate Stunt Driving uses some of the best driving instructors in Australia. With experience such as theirs and ability and enthusiasm to match, they could teach your grandmother how to do this. There are even automatic cars to choose if that makes you more comfortable.

The new driving centre at Mt Cotton is where you need to get to for one of these driver experiences. This is a world class driver education & driver training facility, nestled amongst 48 hectares of natural bushland, approximately 40km south of Brisbane and 60km north of the Gold Coast, it's basically West of Redland Bay.
Saturday the 10th May is the next experience in Brisbane so get in quick and book now. Enter the word NOTES when you book to receive $50 off the standard price.
If you don't think you're up to driving yourself, you can always get one of their Wild Rides and speed round the course with one of the instructors at the wheel.
The Ultimate Stunt Driving experience is an all weather sport, so it doesn't matter if it's raining or hailing. Dress comfortably and wear closed shoes. Spectators are also welcome, so bring all your friends to take photos of you.

This driving experience is absolutely not just for blokes, anyone can give this a go, and personally, I can't wait to try it! I don't know why, normally I'm the knit-your-own-yoghurt-while-riding-a-bike type but there's something about the opportunity to pull a handbrake turn that I find completely irresistible.
They also offer corporate days as well, and it would make a great staff day out, work bonding day, I think.
