"Fellow motorist Jake Tripp filmed the incident on his mobile phone." - Great, award him 6 points & a fine then!

It's official. The Ford sierra is a 'classic' Daily Mail said so.


Not the time or place for that though. Do that kinda thing on a quiet industrial estate, not busy residential roads.

Indeed - might have tried similar activities myself in such places - far less chance of hurting people or damaging your (or other) vehicles!

Yeah, typical accurate reporting, I'd not watched the video all thro', having now done so it's pretty clear that both cars are way over the speed limit which is 30mph, so personally if I was Jake Tripp I might have kept my gob shut rather than selling an incriminating video to the Daily Fail!

That's why trackdays are such a good idea.
Keep off the road.

Youd get chucked off unless its specific drift day.

I know he's irresponsible and shouldn't do it. But there's something about an old sierra glx (not even a cossie) gliding round a roundabout that has just made me chuckle.

Seems like he's not a half bad drifter either

Ahhh, it is no worse than some of the drivers I come across on a daily basis that seem to struggle doing the basic of tasks. Using indicators, checking mirrors, refusing to read and respond to the scenarios they are dealt with.

At least once he is on the roundabout people have to give way. He can do his thing and then sod off. In control and not speeding. You law abiding sticklers of fun!!

Joking aside, this is on my commute, I use the 1st two roundabouts every day with my motorbike. They are really really busy, the last two in particular are also complicated with pedestrian crossings on all of their exits so tough to read.





Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!
