BUCKLE UP!

“Hyperdrive” is a crazy new car competition series from Executive Producer and Oscar winning actress Charlize Theron that bills itself as “American Ninja Warrior-meets-Fast and Furious.

Hyperdrive “looks like the best new car show in decades,” according to The Drive. The series is filmed in Rochester, New York, on a crazy obstacle course that competitors must navigate while driving modified cars. But it’s not just about the cars and obstacles, it’s about the people behind the wheel.
Fielding Shredder (yes - his real name) is a driving instructor at Rally School in Austin, TX.
