    How did I know that his "Lambro" would have stickers on the doors before I even watched the clip... ?

    This isn’t a Lambo owner thing. It’s more of a Rally thing.

    Corsa and Gold Rush especially attract these types likely due to the image they market.

    Corsa Rally events have had at least 3 major crashes since 2017.

    1. The 720S that got shredded to pieces in Vegas and was all over YouTube.

    2. The M6 that flew off the road somewhere in a Western desert. Some claim it was driving in the oncoming lane and swerved to avoid oncoming car but I haven’t seen any video evidence

    3. Just few months ago a 600LT, 570S, and a Huracan all got into a multi car crash in the middle of a busy street of a city.

    Not a great track record of responsibility and safety

    I stopped riding Ducatis in groups on the street because of crap like this.

    We had a fundraising rally locally here with the exotic car guys that worked for a bit, but then got out of hand with people just being stupid with speed on public roads (running the large cyclist group off the road didn’t help).

    It’s a shame because it is fun to drive with and see many exotics at one time, but people just can’t either tone it down or keep it quiet.

    track days for the bikes and solo trips on fun roads for the car. People **** it up for anything else.

    I went on several rallies from 2001 thru 2007, and there were a majority of us that while very fast tended to use it when it was safe, on highways etc and in lighter traffic, and there was a minority that pushed their luck a lot. Most weren’t in my opinion dangerous to the extreme, but they did rely on the general public being more aware and preemptive than maybe I would trust them to be.

    these days, however, even having done rallies, I’m surprised at the ‘hooning’ they do on public roads..... burnouts, donuts in intersections etc..... none of the minority of my time really bothered with the childish stuff like that, fast just meant high speed runs... nowadays, they spend more time going in smoky circles and all I can do is cringe waiting for the cars to fail, tyres to explode, or a cop turn up. Nutcases in the extreme some of them.

    I always figured that if you got away with something like that, you keep your mouth shut and your head down.... the cop has your details, he is likely to get his chief on his back, and you might just get the summons to court you originally avoided, surely?
