Not sure if serious.
troll, or an idiot, or he might be LLF - all of the aforementioned perhaps. Harry often slows it right down or says "i can't show you any more on this road as we'd be getting in trouble" or something similar.

When Harry Metcalf drives silly speeds on public roads in a so-called PH friendly car bow

Love the double standards on this place.
Harry Metcalfe puts his foot down a bit and uses the performance briefly, usually in something quick-ish, he wasnt hanging about in that Sport Quattro but that has 300 bhp, LLF is now driving, and being driven in stuff with a 1000 bhp and putting his foot down and keeping it there.

The difference is being maybe a little bit naughty, exceeding the speed limit a bit to try and convey a flavour of the car in question somewhere quiet, and then there is LLF winding out some tuned monster through the gears to excruciating looking speeds past populated areas, on roads overtaking other traffic with a massive speed differential.

Why would we have "Double Standards", its one Youtuber vs another, If Harry was doing something dickish and dangerous I am sure he would be called out on it.

Question guys...

The channels like LLF, DMO DJ etc, can that footage be used by Police to prosecute?

Joe Achilles was done not too long ago from his own footage. I think because LLF makes it tricky to work out actual speeds (short clips of the road, lack of landmarks to reference speed/times) it'll be harder to prosecute from his footage, unfortunately.

I noticed Rana has upped his social media game and is uploading on YT more frequently, he also posted about going to a test drive event with shmarc150. He is now been manged by shmarc and shmee?
Just watched the Rana video of his trip to AMG F1 to configure a Project One. A good insight into how the other half live!

Have you seen some of their work on their Facebook page?
Hardly the best quality exhaust, it’s just miles of cheap pipe with U clamps joining it all together. They don’t even seem to have a mandrel bender

This happened months ago - I’m surprised it’s only just making it to the Wail.

Rory Reid doing some nice work for the Auto trader channel now I like his presenting style, always felt he got short changed on Top Gear seemed to mostly be given the less interesting stuff to review.

Nice to see Jay Emm bringing back some variety! Still think Remove Before Race is a brilliant brand devoted challenge.
