That was quite enjoyable. Learn how to drive before racing... Just a thought!

Street racing is stupid. That was funny though. I'm sure the guy in the C6 was really pissed though.

An excellent source of evidence for the prosecutor to use if it goes to court.

Not to mention almost all insurance policies will deny claims caused by street racing, and they're never going to find better evidence than this.

Watch the video a little more closely. When the C5 gets squirly at first he hits the brakes, then comes off, then the C5 comes around again and he hit them again. If he had kept his foot down, it wouldn't of happened in reality.

The local police department have this video, as both parties claimed they weren't racing

Yep. You definetly can't fix stupid. That's the problem today. You give two idiots fast cars and they think they're Steve McQueen or Vin Diesel.

The owners of the corvettes left the scene of the accident. Warrants are out for their arrest. Most likely going to face decent time in jail for street racing and leaving the scene of a accident.
