A RECKLESS driver has been caught on camera spinning out of control at a roundabout after apparently trying to impress his female passenger with a handbrake turn.
A dashcam clip shows the Vauxhall Corsa appear to pull the handbrake after entering a roundabout.
But instead of pulling off a “cool” power slide into the left turn the vehicle spins through 180 degrees and ends up on the verge before quickly moving off.
Dashcam owner Steve Mack caught the unusual moment on A57 near Lincoln.
At the start of the video Steve can be seen approaching the roundabout with two white cars ahead of him.
As he begins to enter the junction the Vauxhall Corsa can also be seen joining the roundabout at speed.
However, as the Vauxhall begins turns off the first junction the rear end of the car appears to snap around and sends the driver and his passenger in into the verge.
The driver appears to have grabbed the handbrake causing the spin but is unable to control the slide.
After mounting the verge, the driver manages to keep the car going and conitnues driving along the A57.
Speaking about the clip dash cam driver Steve said: “I think he was showing off to the girl in the passenger seat.”
A spokesman for road safety campaign website SWD Media, who obtained the footage, said: “It is not easy to tell if the driver was doing a handbrake turn, or just simply lost control of his car but speed is definite a factor here.
“Fortunately the road was quiet and he never hit anyone else, and did not roll his car over.
“Next time he might not be so lucky so hopefully he will learn from his mistake.”
