I've seen the videos of hoonage from SA but those seem to be on roads with little other traffic.

Beats the boredom of the M25.

When I first lived in Saudi I perfected my handbrake turns. But how d'you get a car up on 2 wheels in the first place?

Are you Bison in disguise? The whole performance is complete madness. Where are the Police when you need them? Probably driving those cars...

Aw c'mon on... Boys gotta have some fun. The central reserve's wide enough to stop them hitting on-coming traffic, everybody was far enough behind them to be safe, and the only damage they'd do would be to themselves.

Now--HOW do I get my Passat up on 2 wheels, somebody please.

Anyone need a carshare with me?

I can't imagine its very good for your car! This video has been doing the rounds a fair bit, surely the police could get the number plates from this? Personally I think keeping this on private or closed roads would be a better idea, but on busy routes used by Jo Public the captain sensible inside me does think its a really dumbarse thing to do!

The numbers are clearly visible which means- it's someone laying down the gauntlet (unlikely)

or they've swapped the plates with their mates whose cars are totally different.



Anyway- how old is this video?

Is it truly a response to the announcement of the new clampdown? Or a resurfacign of an old tape?

Yup, they have track days there most weekends now. 1000Dh I think.

I have a Pajero... taking that on a track wouldn't be described as enjoyable (nor is driving it on the road come to think of it)
