The building block for the 180 and 360 spin, master the 90 and you’ve taken the first step to graduating stunt school.

Here, Danny Bopp gives the run through for succeeding the tricky 90 degree turn stunt. Perfect for the parallel parker, you’ll be the talk of the town and the cops when you scare the shit out of shoppers at your local mall parking lot with this one:

Stunt driving is all about hitting your marks, making a mental note of the routine of procedures you’re about to pull off and execute with absolute precision. An error could involve a shunt, so practice makes perfect.

Bopp’s top tip: Cruise at around 25mph and only turn the steering wheel by a quarter-turn.

Follow these steps for pulling off a 90-degree turn and you’ll be on your way to nailing the trickier 180 and 360. Maybe you’ll be up there with the Hell Drivers of the 70’s – A troupe of Brazilian and German renegades who stunned crowds with their highly calculated moves.
