Supercar drivers cause gridlock in Central London

A group of petrol heads caused chaos in Central London last night as a large number of high performance cars met up for a cruise. 

Several of the cars entertained the gathered crowds by performing burnouts. 

Videos from the scene showed plumes of smoke while the audio captured the sound of engines revving. 

Some petrolheads enjoy doing ‘burnouts’, which involve spinning the back wheels of the car while standing on the brakes to prevent the car from shooting forward. 

If there is more space, the driver might start doing doughnuts, spinning the car around in circles. 

Witnesses said there were a large number of police officers who witnessed the reckless behaviour but did not intervene directly. 

Performing burnouts or doughnuts on the public road places the driver at risk of a charge of dangerous driving. 

Also, because the tyres are often destroyed or damaged while performing the stunt, this can lead to additional penalty points.
