Some of you may recall Stacey-Lee May, South Africa’s ‘Spinning Queen’ who made headlines a couple of years ago for her incredible spinning skills like hanging out of her moving vehicle.

Stacey-Lee’s “Spinderella” story is an incredible tale of an Eldorado Park teen who went from being bullied at school to taking the title of “Queen of Smoke” with her impressive spinning skills.

Currently, on Netlix, Stacey-Lee is featured in Hyperdrive, the new reality car show produced by Charlize Theron. The show features drivers from around the world testing their skills and putting their cars through a series of challenges.

In a clip for the second episode of the season, Charlize and Stacey-Lee take a heart-stopping spin and in true Spinderella style, Stacey-Lee takes the Hollywood superstar on an open track to demonstrate her impressive spinning skills, hanging out the car at times as is customary in this sport.

Watch the clip here and catch the series on Netflix.
