Your chance to be a movie stunt driver

Ford Go Faster event

Ever dreamed of being a movie stunt driver? Ford’s Go Faster event is back and it could be your big chance…

From June 29 to July 8 lucky shoppers at intu Trafford Centre in Manchester will be able to act and perform stunt driving – and then see their newly-found skills immortalised forever on film.

They will learn classic Hollywood stunts, including drifts and J-turns, taught by professional drivers, and their scenes will be added to the “Go Faster” trailer.

They will perform a series of these heart-pounding manoeuvres in a Focus RS hot hatch as they try to shake a chasing Ford Mustang, all filmed using high quality cameras and rigs.

Coupled to acting scenes, they will end up starring as Wheels in a movie trailer for “Go Faster”, playing a race driver turned getaway driver as they help to pull-off a daring casino heist.

Tickets for Ford Go Faster are on sale now priced £69-£149 per person with a limited number of places available. Those who sign up for the challenge will receive a call-sheet, storyboard and script ahead of time, before turning up to the huge custom designed site to see for themselves what it’s like to be the coolest person on set for a day.

“This is a unique opportunity to not only perform stunts in one of the mostly highly-rated hot hatches, but to also see yourself and your stunt driving skills appear in a proper movie trailer,” said Andrew Merryweather, Ford’s Brand Experience Manager.

“It’s like cinema meets extreme driving lessons, all covered in sleek Hollywood-style production, and it gives participants an unforgettable day out as well as the ultimate brag-worthy content to share with friends.”

Alison Niven, regional centre director, intu Trafford Centre said “intu Trafford Centre is the only the second UK location and first shopping centre to be selected for this fantastic event from Ford UK.

“It’s going to provide intu Trafford Centre visitors with a unforgettable experience putting their stunt-driving skills to the test behind the wheels of some iconic Ford cars.”
