“This is my first crash in almost 30 years and it had to happen in someone else’s car. Thankfully the only thing hurt was the car and a bush fence, for which I am extremely sorry.”

Anthony Hamilton, father and manager of Formula star Lewis Hamilton, crashed a borrowed Porsche Carrera GT after showing off to bystanders. Just after Anthony and his wife Linda, Lewis' stepmother, left their home Anthony decided to show off the Porsche super car by revving the engine.

Instead of wowing the people with awe he shocked them by spinning 180 degrees and crashing through a bush and fence only to come to a halt again in a children play park. Neither Anthony or Linda were hurt and no children were present in the park leaving only the extremely limited Porsche with thousands of Pounds of damage.

Anthony said: “This is my first crash in almost 30 years and it had to happen in someone else’s car. Thankfully the only thing hurt was the car and a bush fence, for which I am extremely sorry.”
