Ben Collins, Former Top Gear Stig, Shows Us How To Become A Stunt Driver

There are a number of performance driving schools across the nation, and most of them offer enough thrills for what they offer. I went to Exotics Racing in Las Vegas a few years back and spent the day tearing around the track in a Ferrari 458. It was AWESOME.

And then there are those schools that take it up a notch like Palmer Sport in Bedford. At Palmer Sport, you are given an entire day to drive all six cars offered: a Renault Clio Cup, BMW M4 GTP, Land Rover Defender, Ariel Atom 3, Palmr JP-LM, and a Formula 3000 car.

Or, you can be Joe Achilles from YouTube and have a personalized stunt driving lesson from one Ben Collins, the former Stig himself:

As part of a promotion from the film American Assassin, Achilles shows us his day with Collins ripping around the Palmer Sport facility at the Bedford Aerodrome. It looked like an incredible day with a number of incredible cars.

All I know is Achilles’ day with Collins puts my day in a Ferrari 458 to shame.

Cars, the Buffalo Bills, video games, comics, sandwiches, jelly beans, and the shooting star press; these are the things that Tony loves (in addition to his family, of course). When he's not spending his time writing tech reviews for, Tony puts his lifetime love of muscle cars to use on his 2015 Mustang GT. Tony's top three favorite cars are the 1973 Mustang Mach 1, Ferrari 458, and Aston Martin DBS.
