M3, Camera, Action!

Tuesday, January 12 2010

Former Blue Peter presenter Gethin Jones put his driving skills to the test at Oulton Park recently as part of his latest television assignment.

Jones, who is also a former Strictly Come Dancing contestant, powered round the Cheshire track in one of Oulton Park's BMW M3 driving experience vehicles.

Gethin's spin in the BMW M3, which is capable of going 0-60mph in just 4.6 seconds, was filmed to demonstrate how speed should be reserved for the safety of the race track and not on public roads.

The TV star received some expert advice from BTCC fans' favourite Paul O'Neill, who gave Gethin some one-to-one instruction before performing some demonstration laps to show him the full capabilities of the powerful M3.

"What a great experience!" commented a thrilled Jones. "The M3 is a fantastic car and I enjoyed every minute. I love the circuit too, it's great fun to drive and I will definitely be back!"

You too can follow in Gethin Jones' footsteps and drive the exhilarating BMW M3 at Oulton Park. M3 Master driving experiences are available from £149. For more information call 0870 950 9000 or click on the link below.
