    I'm loving the L plate in the front windscreen!

    No, i wouldn't say he was a boy racer but he does need to learn how to control a car through corners and his gear changes are abysmal.

    pair of ***in neds that dont know how to drive. his revs and cornering was horrible. he reckons whatever motor he had was 0-60 in 5 or 6secs. did seem quite quick though, but looked more like 7-8 to me.

    I wouldn't call them boy racers. Crap drivers maybe, but not boy racers.

    I dont think you have seen enough of these boy's life to judge what theyre like the rest of the time. they hardly talk like royalty, thats all I can say.

    That was the most pathetic thing I have ever witnessed. Were they making up a little adventure? "Oh no! We're going slightly over the speed limit, and revving the engine really loud! THE POLICE ARE AFTER US!!!!!!!!!!"
    I loved the part where he stopped in the middle of the road, just to do a wheelspin. "Do a complete burnout!!!11", how pathetic.

    You know what? This video is VERY similar to the video the OP posted:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YmM6...elated&search=

    It's a bunch of 8 year old kids with bangers, setting them on the ground....
    They then quickly run as they assume the police is after them. How hilarious.

    There is no way that that car was getting to 60 even in 8 secconds, it sounded liek a completly standard 1- 1.3 litre, it was obviously struggling.

    I wouldnt say they are boy racers, but i would say they are stupid for driving if he hasnt passed his test, which is what it looks like. No insurance = very very bad!

    The driving itself wasnt that bad considering he prob didnt have much experience, he was driving fast, but still slowing and not tailing people in front. no stupid over taking either.
    His cornering was generally safe, whenever he cut a corner there was a cler view of the road ahead- i often do that as well, its actualyl safer, and a more direct route.
    His gear changes were a little rough, but he mostly had them at the right time.

    Cutting corners with full view is an advanced driving technique, done under circumstances as per road craft, it is fine.

    However, they got wheel spin on a reasonably dry bit of road in second downhill from the 90 seconds or so that I watched it, aslong as I heard right. Therefore it's not a 1.0 Corsa However, the camera makes it seem like they are going much quicker than they are...

    It's a Mk6 Fiesta, revised model, so is pretty much brand new. I believe it's an ST, so has a 2 litre engine, and would get to 60 in 8 seconds if he could drive well. They do rev very highly, as all sporting Fiesta's do. They have much shorter ratios on the gear box to help acceleration.

    Oh, and spinning the front wheels in a Fiesta is like shooting fish in a barrel. You can do it in a 1250.

    The way he behaves makes him a 'boy racer', and not the car he drives though. He is a boy racer.
