My thoughts are that it wasn't exactly unsafe, but would be far too tempting if you owned a car like that. The most dangerous bit was slamming on the anchors when he spotted the camera.

I don't think I'd want a car that fast any more - you'd inevitably be tempted to use it...

Personally i think he's a t**t and he deserves everything he got, the motorcyclists are only learners and they could have reacted the wrong way and possibly caused injuries having said that like nicebiscuit said i can imagine it would be tempting when you own a car like that and he probably wont learn anything from what he done.

Other than panicking and locking up when he spotted the camera I dont see much wrong with that TBH. He's in a quick car and (as far as I can see anyway) Simply overtook as quickly and safely as possible.

113 (recorded) MPH is fairly brisk - not that you need a Porsche to do it. The only part which showed a well-engineered car was how fast it shed 70MPH with minimal loss of line.

His only mistake was getting caught, he should have broken into each one of the motorcyclists houses, with no previous he would have got a less serious fine and punishment.

mmmmm, 113mph if it was me i would have thrown f**king book at him, its idiots like this that cause fatal accidents and its always an innocent person or persons that suffer. I might be being a bit harsh but i lost a good friend and his wife due to some moron overtaking in a ferrari doing extortionate speeds and collided head on with them

Ermm so you think this kind of driving is ok? The biggest contributary cause of accidents in this country is S P E E D. End of.

Don't get me wrong. I would be lying if I said I don't speed. However, that driving manoeuvre was totally out of order. Those inexperienced leaners riders - he was lucky he didn't cause a catostrophic accident.

Oh and 99.99% of burglars would never harm anyone or cause anyones' death through their actions but a lot of bad drivers do !!!

Actually, excessive speed is a factor in only around 15% of all RTAs.

I'm not condoning the driving in the video, but people erroneously apportion far too much blame on speed.
