Featured here before no doubt as its a compilation of previous clips but check out 5.40 and 6.35. Double whammy close pass (blink and you'll miss it) of cyclists and olympic knobhead level of going through on red.

5.40 looked like a perfectly safe pass to me.

If you don't get hit by the nearside wing mirror it's a safe pass. Stop whinging.

I think that must be some kind of spoof/parody account.

Looks as though the driver was trying to make a point (dramatically) of her hogging the lane. A bit OTT but frustration builds on UK roads with this sort of daily incompetence. So she's sent off to do a nice little educational course while he's banned for a year and picking litter for 100 hours. No wonder people lane hog really.

No bad thing that a MLM gets their collar felt but really, WTF was the SUV thinking - looked a bit WALTy so alarm bells should already be ringing - do i see Mission Motorsport livery?

Quite! I was passed closer every working day for over 20yrs but with much less of a speed differential so didn't find it alarming. Increasing traffic volume, deteriorating roads and near misses led me to going cross country on my mtb in the later years. Twice as far but much more fun.

Most drivers need to remember one simple fact: "You are not the police." (Except the ones who are actually Police Officers)

Therefore, it is not your job to enforce the law. Yes, MLMs are annoying and the buggers are everywhere, but it's not our job as drivers to attempt to 'punish' them. Just drive round them and pull back in. Maybe submit dashcam footage to the police of particularly irritating MLMs, but nothing more.

Ridiculously over the top penalty for getting frustrated behind a bad driver.

Mission Motorsport stickers on there certainly, maybe a marshal from Silverstone?

No - she flashed him, so he tried to squeeze her into the central reservation. Clearly deliberate.

The undertake probably wouldn't have raised an eyebrow by the plod - it was the second manouever that got him done.

There has to be a deterrent for this type of driver otherwise they will carry on doing things like that and will eventually cause a collision.
The standard of driving from the the person in the Land Cruiser was shocking and dangerous! If they had simply undertaken and carried on their way then I am sure they would not have been reported, but they chose to dangerously intimidate the other driver so fully deserve to be punished.

Unfortunate timing and circumstances rather than st driving.

Elevation change or the Caterham? moving left causes Porche to lose it on tricky high speed section of the Nurburgring. Difficult to say without seeing it from the Porche's perspective and those that have driven it will have a better idea. Not the ideal spot to overtake at high speed going by other footage. Porche stays on all four wheels to remain relatively intact, had it rolled over however...

Think that was the little hump on the left there, that accident was happening from a long way back before the Caterham moved at all.

Was that a porsche engine trying to show it wants to be at the front, while all the sophisticated control elements were trying to tell it otherwise?
Who won?
