​Do You Reckon You Could Make It As A Racing Driver?

Being a racing driver is a dream job for lots of people. But there's a big difference between being able to find your way to the supermarket for a weekly shop and tearing around a track in competition with the best in the world.

In fact, for some people, just getting to work every day can be a nightmare of stalls and misdirection.

Take Lewis, for example, he openly admits he's the 'worst driver in the world'. As he can barely make it to the end of his street without looking like he's about to mount the kerb, we decided to throw him in at the deep end to see if it might help him improve.

We got him on the track in a British built Vauxhall Astra for a session with Rob Wilson, who has taught and trained some of the best drivers in the world, to get his driving skills up to speed.

Unfortunately for Lewis, it didn't quite work out as planned and the footage is pretty painful to watch...

You could hardly describe it as a clinic in taking the wheel of an automobile but, with that said, at least he gave it a go.
