Viral video: 'Garage racers' drifting in public road

A video that captured what a netizen called "garage racers" drifting in a public road thereby causing traffic in Angeles City has gone viral.


Popular motoring magazine Top Gear Philippines posted the 8-second clip on its Facebook page late Saturday afternoon, May 9, with the caption:

NOT ON PUBLIC ROADS, PLEASE."

Quoting a certain Francis Dayrit, the post reads:

"A friend of mine caught these garage racers doing donuts on a public road. They literally stopped the traffic while doing these crazy maneuvers on a busy Angeles City street. This is crazy! It's unsafe and could have caused an accident."


As of 6:45 p.m. today, the viral video already got more than 1,800 likes and over 200 shares. It was also viewed more than 42,800 times on the social networking site.

Update:

TGP has removed the video. It turned out that the "exhibition" was part of a motorcade.

We took down the video showing a car drifting on a public road in Angeles City. The organizers of Pacific Drift Championship apparently had a permit to do that.
