Reckless driving!

Found quite a few videos over the weekend.

Here's an amusing one...

Damn good drivin'

I had my car doing a similar thing a few months ago on a wet day (not intentionally) - only problem was it wasnt quite as controlled as that - hit the inside barrier and bounced off and clipped another car.

DOH ! - 2 years of my no claims discount down the drain.

I now have a lot more respect for bends in the wet !!!

And here's a couple of outrageous ones which I've stolen from Jono.

The first one is where they get it right...

Yeah, skillful innit... I thought a crunch was comin!

Here's another skillful one - I once witnessed this exact same manoevure happen in the carpark of a car hire company. The bloke got out after completing the manoevre and walked into the office. I thought he was going to get some serious words from the staff, but he walked straight into the office with "Managing Director" on the door!

Yes that's the bloke - still going strong - does the new Mini ads now - holds a few world records for "parallel parking"!!!

He really is awesome - saw him practicing for a tv ad a few years ago - he did about 100 takes and the only accident was one cracked number plate!!!

He has even been to Japan to show them how it's done......
