    As Clarkson would say: "'I'd have them all shot."

    I only hope that when it goes wrong sometime that he only will kill himself. What an absolute idiot.

    I saw the first shot of the video and thought this post was a little melodramatic, but then I saw the way he was driving in traffic. What an absolute idiot. He will definitely get in a serious accident driving like that, I just hope he only hurts himself.

    That's just poor and short thinking!

    He may think he's in full controll of the car and he may be right. But those guys always forgett that they're absolutely unpredictable for other people, so it's just a matter of time it goes wrong.

    A big shame that those guys do hurt and kill innocent sons, daughters, moms and dads! Absolutely reckless.

    I certainly know what that guy would answer if he got asked what he'd do if someone kills a family member in such a reckless act.

    A future candidate to the Darwin awards, perhaps.

    And car seizure in 3... 2... 1...

    What an utterly inexcusable thing to do. He might feel he's a professional but the mum driving the X5 isn't expecting him to weave past at 60mph. I was amazed that he felt this a responsible thing to do. Don't think I've seen a more reckless act on a public road since Kim Dotcom (yes, that Kim Dotcom) posted his street racing videos on streetfire.

    While i do think that this is the most idiotic piece of driving I've ever seen, it does seem as the driver was fully aware how much of a stupid thing he was doing, and got very lucky not to hurt anyone (just the M5 :mad:).

    Their advertising campaign certainly worked though, didn't it? 1M views in a week, I've seen a lot more idiotic things done for advertising than an 8 minute video of a skilled driver. (You've got to admit that he is skilled)

    I'm just worried about the poor idiots who think that this is something to be admired and copied.

    Did not mean to offend anyone, I've lost many friends to idiotic driving on public roads, so i think i know how much it hurts.

    The reason morons like this don't use a race track is because when they upload there precious Youtube video they can edit out all the errors they make and accedents they have. On a race track whether a track day or racing event you can't afford to make mistakes and loose control of the car as the spaces and enviroment call for a much higher standard of driving requiring more skill. But hey, atleast they seem to think there good.....
