    This sounds like the guy on Facebook!

    There is an official group I believe for the VXR Driver of the year comp and some tool has put a video of himself driving like a total nut after a superbike in a VX220 on public roads!!!

    Sad tale. I go past the scene most days. Lots of flowers and the investigation markings are still there, quite eerie.

    Seems the guy was hoofing it a bit as we all have, spotted a cop car awaiting speeders, and if I read right lost concentration worrying about the cop car and failed to see the car pulling out in front of him.

    My mother in law lives about 100 yards away and we were staying over while our childminder is away on her hols. My missus was out that evening and arrived back about 20 mins before it happened. I just thank god she wasnt 20 minutes late or she could have been one of the cars this guy hit. I feel sorry for his passenger and family, news report said his sister lost her husband in iraq earlier in the year. As for him? We'll its not suitable for the forum....

    Yes it does sound nasty.

    Reading through the thread it seems there is no definative conclusion as to what exactly did happen other than he clipped a car overtaking and that this was 10 seconds after the police car began to follow him.

    The young lad who lived 2 doors away from us was killed just before Christmas in a head on collision and people were very quick to point the finger then without knowing all the facts.
