Do these people really think no one can work out the speeds? Same as those who blur the speedos I their videos!
Seems this news is hitting the popular news outlets, just saw it on the BBC. I have met Joe, he seemed like a really nice bloke and believe he owns a chauffeuring business. Bit silly to have filmed it and posted it, seemed to be a fair few cars on the road too..

I don't watch any TGE stuff but still can't get away from him.

Every advert on Twitter or Instagram for a supercar that is blue or has stripes on it just gets littered with posts tagging him with comments of 'TGE Spec' or 'Get it bought Lad!' 'Would look CHAOS next to the Pistsa' etc.

LLF is a totally unwatchable moron. "Yeah bruv, man like Ricky driving sick carz innit" all the time with his stupid one-handed leaning serious-face driving style. It's dreadful.
I couldn't agree more. Also the cringe-worthy lot who call everyone 'lad'. But I've come to realise that people (presumably 14 year old boys) like it.

I've now found the 'don't recommend this channel' button on youtube which has really helped keep those tracksuits off my screen.

So it seemed to be suggested that Joe's speed was 65 with the video speeded up to make it look a lot faster. Could that be right? If so isn't 6 points far too high? Has anyone read or watched enough to know more? I have met Joe and consider him sensible and responsible - his mistake to post the video but unfortunate for him to be the one to be prosecuted for a video.

I'm surprised Joe didn't get a ban. Is snake pass still 60mph? Thought it was down to 50mph now and given they said he was driving around 93mph.

Plenty of his videos show him wringing cars out for the first few gears - given what he's driving (M5s etc) it's quite clear he's getting a move on! That being said his spirited driving does seem more considered than a lot out there. DMO and LLF well I'm surprised the boys in blue haven't caught up with them.

50mph according to ITV.

I can’t imagine it’s difficult for a professional to determine if a video has been sped up or not.

PS I am confident that he would have been banned if he was doing 93. Atrocious journalism that the uncorrected speed is reported.

Nearly every DVD you ever watched was sped up and you probably never noticed

I’m not a professional. Hence I have no idea what you are on about.

hehe no they don't. They just don't put it on film.
Yeah, thats true, they use spotters and cars to confirm the way is clear, then dont show any lawbreaking, thats where the amateurs struggle.

“At nearly 100mph” comes from the Derbyshire Police (surely the police wouldn’t lie to us?!?). They also provide the detail that Joe was travelling at 93mph at one point.

Clearly haven't seen much of his driving: time and a place!

I'm not quite sure why the police think it is suitable to put Joe's home address into the public domain? That seems rather unnecessary.

When you are in court, hearings in which are held in public, as defendent/offender your address is given out.

That's crazy what has happened to Joe. It was always a fear of mine that something would make its way to the police. I find it hard to believe that nothing would have been reviewed.

I used to always kid myself that the police had better things to do, but I guess with the less of them you see on the streets, the more you see them on Facebook smile

Still, I don't think the penalty was that severe. It could have been worse.

Would be nice if Joe would come on and give the full story from start to finish, if he fancies type

its just as well they didn't get the original shmee passenger ride in the P1 that he filmed hitting 180 on a mway (paul bailey?) or the monkey harris vid where he was passenger (with no seat or belt) in a F1 GTR doing 150+ through rural villages

I watch plenty of motor bike channels that as soon as they hit 60mph they blur the speedo yet keep throttle wide open.

Not hard to work out what's going on. OK - it's not crazy speeds but its easy 90-100 mph on NSL roads.

Fair enough open the taps and have fun when no one is around but filming it and making a very lazy attempt to hide the speeds is surely asking for trouble.
