Former Formula 1 mechanic, Marc "Elvis" Priestley, gets up close to some of the world's most fascinating amateur motorsports.

Elvis was one of McLaren Racing's top mechanics, helping the team become Formula 1 world champions. Now, he's after a new challenge: he's going back to basics, taking his F1 know-how to some of the most extraordinary amateur motorsports on the planet. These include tractor pulling in the UK, car spinning in South Africa, hopping low­‐riders in Mexico, folk racing in Sweden, drag racing in Cuba, and long-­tail boat racing in Thailand.

Travelling thousands of miles, Elvis takes his specialist knowledge to each grassroots racing scene, and works with local auto experts to build superior vehicles for competition.

With little time, limited funds, strict guidelines and foreign motorsports, the likes of which he has never seen before, Elvis will not only attempt to transform these motors into winners, but also thrill the crowds and honour the traditions along the way.

Driving Wild - List of countries by minimum driving age - Netflix

The minimum driving age is the minimum age at which a person may obtain a driver's licence to lawfully drive a motor vehicle on public roads. That age is determined by and for each jurisdiction and is most commonly set at 18 years of age, but learner drivers may be permitted on the road at an earlier age under supervision. Before reaching the minimum age for a driver's licence or anytime afterwards, the person wanting the licence would normally be tested for driving ability and knowledge of road rules before being issued with a licence, provided he or she is above the minimum driving age. Countries with the lowest driving ages (17 and below) are Canada, El Salvador, Iceland, Israel, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, the United Kingdom (Mainland), United States and Zimbabwe. In several jurisdictions in the United States and Canada, drivers can be as young as 14. Most jurisdictions recognise driver's licences issued by another jurisdiction, which may result in a young person who obtains a licence in a jurisdiction with a low minimum driving age being permitted to drive in a jurisdiction which normally has a higher driving age. The minimum age may vary depending on vehicle type. This list refers to the minimum driving age for a motor vehicle with a maximum authorized mass not exceeding 3,500 kg and designed and constructed for the carriage of no more than eight passengers in addition to the driver (not including a trailer).
