‘Boy racers’ turn Asda car park into racetrack as they fill air with smoke

"Boy racers" have been filmed performing doughnuts and burnouts in an Asda car park in Birmingham, a shocking video has shown.

The video, which was captured by a fed up local, captured the sky filled with smoke as the cars run rings around the supermarket car park.

As the cars skid around the echo of the tyres screeching fills the area.

The video was recorded in late November and has seen a flurry of complaints come from other residents.

“I think more should be done to stop this happening as its an accident waiting to happen," the camera man said.

Local councillors Barbara Dring and Keith Linnecor said they had received no complaints to date but would be speaking to police about the problem.

According to Birmingham Mail, Coun Dring said: “I am sorry to hear of the problems of boy racers at Asda, we have not had any complaints to date but it is something that needs to be nipped in the bud.

“I will be alerting our tasking group and our local police to the issue and ask for a report back as this could be a matter of public safety given the store’s opening hours.”

Residents on a Great Barr forum quickly flooded in to air their concerns.

One said: “I hear the cars screeching all the time especially in the summer it’s so annoying."

Another added: “I was there when it happened. It went on for ages.

"Scary is an understatement.”

One person even described it as "anti social behaviour."

A spokesperson from Asda said: “We know that the majority of our customers drive respectfully in our car parks, and although we haven’t received any complaints about this type of behaviour at our Queslett store we will continue to work with local authorities on these matters.’’
