And user Mickrs4 said: “Haha you got smoked off by the Type R. How do you feel?”

The dangerous stunt comes just over a week after David Jamieson, West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, revealed that the quiet roads are being turned into racetracks.

He said: “Quiet roads are no excuse to use them as a racetrack.

“Speed remains one of the biggest killers on our roads and the utterly reckless and irresponsible drivers breaking the speed limit are putting the lives of themselves, pedestrians and other road users at serious risk.

“Just because the roads are quieter at the moment due to coronavirus does not mean that the speed limits no longer apply, speeding is much more obvious on quieter roads.

“There are more officers out on patrol looking out for speeding drivers and taking swift action.

“It is a minority of road users that do not obey the speed limit and put everyone’s lives at risk.”

Police swooped on dozens of street racers during an operation to combat a spike in car cruising during lockdown.

Around 30 vehicles were dispersed from Bassetts Pole, near Sutton Coldfield, on Sunday evening (May 10) by the Warwickshire force.

Officers also found a small number of drivers had defective number plates.

A High Court injunction is in place banning ‘car cruising’ in parts of the Midlands but police confirmed there has been a rise in incidents recently, with drivers looking to take advantage of the quieter streets.

Special Chief Officer Katherine Hancock, from Warwickshire Police, said: “In recent weeks, we have been made aware that large numbers of vehicles have been breaching the car cruising High Court injunction in North Warwickshire.

“In response to this, on the request of Coleshill SNT, officers from the special constabulary were asked to assist with proactively policing the area covered by the High Court Injunction.

“This has led to a downturn in vehicles using north Warwickshire for car cruising opportunities. We will continue to proactively police the area and will continue to report those breaching the High Court injunction.”
