We get these all the time in Glasgow. Wee cnuts. You see them boosting up a 20mph at about 60mph to impress onlookers, without realising nobody's impressed.

Well done EM.
 
Some early spin here...
A group called Cruise-Herts had said on Facebook that it was holding a car meet event on Thursday to raise money for a charity supporting bereaved parents. Rix Sidu, of the club, told the MailOnline: “We organise static meet-ups. We park up and walk about and admire the cars, we’ve even had families come in the past.

“We’ve been doing this for 10 years. But we can’t control everyone and we don’t promote this. We are not boy racers, we are car enthusiasts.”

Yep, admiring them from the central median...
 
Ok i attend more adult type meets, Google Cars and Coffee. But there are more social media led ones that FB will "organise" where cars of the slightly warmed up variety go to the local shopping centre car park after hours, park up, rev a few times and people view other peoples cars. When leaving, you will get lets say spirited acceleration from the car park entrance and be on your way, back home for hot chocolate and crumpet. What does happen is some will like to show off a little too much in their leased Golf R's and take the piss. This then draws out those that like to film aforementioned piss taking from a "good" vantage point.....hence the central reservation on a poorly lit road with crackerjack yoof car drivers hammering it past (Emperor Mong was busy last night!).
This sort of thing does happen a a occasion, they hit each other or throw in a few spectators for good measure but just not on the level of last night.
On the more organised ones like the last one i went to at BMW HQ its better behaved because the type of people that go turn up in more expensive (probably still leased!) Ferrari's and Porsche's or paid for Aston Martins!!
 
Why are 14 year olds out at 2200hrs?
I was out later than that, younger than that, it would have been still daylight though,in the summer I had to be home when it got dark, all my mates were the same.

Just another Mong (PBUH) then, no Darwins involved.
 
I had no idea these sort of events are so widespread - thank God we live out in the sticks.
I see a golden opportunity here though. How about moving these events into the same areas where the Extinction Rebellion ******* are currently camped out and Bobs your Uncle - a welcome and necessary thinning out of the gene pool!
It could be a winner and I’d love to see the video! :smile:
 
These things are the reason why in the early 2000's all the car parks around where I was living were suddenly full of harsh speed bumps to stop all these muppets doing burnouts and donuts around them in Escorts, Fiestas, Novas etc with ridiculous body kits on them. I tinkered with modifying cars a little bit with my first few banger cars but never got fully into the scene. It always seemed to be the fat lads in tracky bottoms who didn't go out drinking and clubbing that were driving around town in their souped up cars at 3am picking up girls coming out of the nightclubs who were using them for a lift home but the lads thought they would get laid.

Cruise Herts should change its name to Cruise Hurts......

Our loal track organises monthly track days for all-comers.
Yep, some folk go out and thrash them around under supervision, but many others arrive and park up to show off their wheels.
Local car journalists, who have the brand new cars, get a lot of feedback from the 'public gauge'.
On the flip side, there's the chavs, in their dropped Hondas and Corsas, hooning around the industrial estates or on the highway at post-midnight.
Some chap in a souped M3 burst a tyre ran out of talent earlier in the year on the highway, and lost both legs.

Got to get that CYA umbrella up toute suite...

...after all the retarded, small dick mongs who drive around in those things are only there to have their cars "admired" and not to race around in them... :roll:

I hope the local car crushers get some extra business soon.

I like the cut of your jib young man. I think that we're onto a winner here!

Indeed.
OR, when things go horribly pear-shaped, as per my second post, blame a tyre burst, or dog ran in front of me...

The raceway organised cheap-as-chips drag racing a while back.
Sign indemnity, have an approved helmet, long sleeves and trousers, and closed shoes, and off you go on the quarter mile.
Did the chavs use it? Nope.
Because a) they had to be scrutineered, and would likely fail
b) their cars were pretty crap
c) they'd lose all 'I beat him by 6 lamp posts' bragging rights when it turns out they'd been beaten by a girl in a Mk1 Golf!

I am glad to see that in this case no trees were hurt or to blame.
 
There used to be a semi regular drag-racing meet near Kilroot Power Station, very early 90s. A closed road with huge concrete blocks (as used extensively by the Army in NI) at the far end.

Mostly fairly harmless, as most of the participants only had about 60 BHP. However, the whole "scene" came to an ubrupt halt when a young lad crashed his parents' 928S4 into one of said concrete blocks. He was unhurt. Well at least until his folks found out: he wasn't supposed to be out in the car.

I like the ‘young man’ in your response - put a spring in my step! :grin:
