So you think you're a good driver?

Well, someone may be about to burst your bubble.

People in Ipswich are being challenged to nominate drivers for the award no one wants to win – Britain's Worst Driver.

So you think you're a good driver?

Well, someone may be about to burst your bubble.

People in Ipswich are being challenged to nominate drivers for the award no one wants to win – Britain's Worst Driver.

Whether they pelt along at speed and barely keep control, dawdle on dual carriageways at 12mph or its just a mystery how they ever arrive anywhere in one piece – the programme makers want to hear about them.

Motorists are being asked to nominate their friends, relatives or even themselves to take part in the second series of Channel 5's shameful driving programme.

But there will be a positive outcome for those dodgy drivers who end up taking part. Contestants will be moulded and transformed from a danger on the roads to model drivers with the help of motoring expert Quentin Wilson.

They will also eventually have to compete in a mad knockout driving competition.

"Not only will the contestants on Britain's Worst Driver 2003 have a real laugh, they'll also learn new driving skills," said Quentin Wilson.

Programme producers say they can't find bad enough drivers in Ipswich, and challenge Evening Star readers to prove them wrong.

If you know anyone you'd rather not get in a car with, but still has a valid drivers licence, you can nominate them for the show by calling 090 133 22 555 or emailing worstdriver@mentorn.co.uk.

Nominations should be made by May 12, 2003.
