Apparently females are better drivers than males. We listen to instructions and do as we're told. Which is why I was so awesome behind the wheel of a Mini Cooper.

Okay, I'm joking, I was totally amazing!!

Ultimate Stunt Driving is here! V8 Supercar champions Dean Canto and Luke Youlden have organised an experience like none other.

I'm pretty sure a lot of people would like to think they could pull off some slick driving manoeuvres like Matt Damon in the first three Bourne series, but, it's a lot harder than it looks and practising on the M1, or anywhere else for that matter, might not be such a good idea. Here's the answer:

The Ultimate Stunt Driving Experience. Personally, I couldn't wait! I was thinking of giving this ticket to my husband and when he said he couldn't, I could barely contain my excitement!

We started out the day learning to perfect 180 hand brake turns, I was almost speechless, it was so much fun! For a good laugh, at my expense have a look at this!

The whole day was great from the start, well organised and well run, and more fun than you could poke a stick at. Guys from the team, in Mini Coopers, are stationed at regular intervals along the road to get trackside so there's no possibility of getting lost. Once there, you arrive at a massive space of bitumen, surrounded by bushland and covered in various cones and markers that define each stunt.

There is a large marquee area set up for spectators, who are most welcome, including children. Many blokes (and gals), had their families there to egg them on. There are also very clean and immaculate loos, big plus in my book. Bring a picnic or refreshments for yourself and particularly your spectators as you will be there for nearly 2 hours and my kids definitely appreciated some snacks.

Once you sign in and collect your wrist band, you can also purchase an additional USB wrist band which the guys will plug into the car when it's your turn so you can have your entire experience in a movie to show off to anyone who will watch. Getting one of these is well worth it, I found it was great to watch my stunts over again (helped me remember how to do it), and it's definitely great for a laugh!

Luke Youlden gets everyone going with a few bad jokes, which helped to lighten the mood, I think people are still a tiny bit nervous even if they don't admit it. I definitely was, although damn excited too.

Dean Canto taught me how to nail 360 degree spins and I managed 2 and ¾ revolutions, the most of the day! Whoo hoo!

The whole team is fantastic, they make everything easy and most importantly encourage you to absolutely go for it. There's not many times in your life you here the words, "it's not your car, stand on the gas!"

This would make a great gift for Father's Day, Mother's Day, a stag party, a hen party, a Girl's Day Out, or even a birthday present, the whole team is so encouraging that it's accessible for guys and girls and even grannies and they even have an automatic for those that aren't confident in a manual.

Go on, burn some rubber! You don't have to pay for the tyres.
