A pair of reckless boy racers who hit 110mph on the North Circular have been banned from the roads and told to pay more than £3,000.
The boys from Leyton and Ilford went head to head in a 50mph zone from Beckton to Ilford in East London. Whilst racing, they failed to notice police vehicles had infiltrated their group.
At a hearing at Stratford Magistrates’ Court, one of the boys was banned from driving for four years whilst his specialist racing car was taken off him. He was also fined £2,000 on admitting road racing on a public highway and driving without due care and attention at excess speed. The other driver had already pleaded guilty to the same charge and was banned for three years, as well as being fined £1,200.
