Cheering crowd protects hoon from police
A DRINK-driver was cheered on by a crowd of about 200 people as he

The burn-out lasted for about 30 seconds, producing a large amount of
Police approached the driver but he sped off through the crowd.
Several people then stood in front of the police car as it attempted to
Police were eventually able to move through the crowd and saw the car again
at the Hume Highway at the Davey Road off-ramp.
They said Froon lost control of the car and crashed into a sign before
continuing along Davey Road.

Walkinshaw enhanced E3 HSV LPI Clubsport with 3inch bimodal exhaust launch & drive by-HD
Please note video footage is best viewed in 720p/1080p HD and was taken
during the new year holiday break on a quiet outer suburban road to ensure
the safety of others. The launch was performed on lpg and comp mode was
selected to prevent wheel spin. Drive by shows how quite the Exhaust can be when cruising and when you open

valves open up with the bimodal system.
