Canadas Worst Driver S12E04 & E05 HDTVx264-CBMNov 24
Season 12, Episode 04
With **************** being named the second graduate of the season, six nominees remain at the Centre. Andrew highlights that this year’s crop of nominees is comprised solely of people younger than him, with no one being able to claim “seniorsitis” as the cause of their driving issues. The two challenges which the six remaining nominees will take this week are both annual challenges or variations thereof. The first is the trough challenge, which is designed to show the drivers that rear wheels take a sharper path than front wheels in a turn, something Andrew demonstrates on the ground before the challenge. Thus, the drivers will have to take wider turns than they would expect for their rear wheels to remain in the trough on the turns. The second is the swerve and avoid challenge, the maneuver which Philippe demonstrates to the nominees beforehand. Philippe’s demonstration shows the drivers that if they step on their brakes to try and avoid hitting something, their wheels will lock causing them to skid right into the object. Instead they must steer – “swerve” – away from the object without braking until the vehicle is back under control.

With ************ being named the latest graduate of the season – something about which Andrew admits he had to eat crow as initially believing she too flaky ever to graduate – five nominees remain at the Centre. Before embarking on the two challenges for the week, the five partake in a demonstration meant to show the dangers of speeding. The demonstration has each of the nominees driving the same course – which has a seen swerve and avoid obstacle – at 50kph, then 60kph then 70kph, which none of the five should be able to do without hitting the obstacle or driving off the course at the “speeding” 70kph. The panel members hope the demonstration hits home
