    here is the caption

    This is what's left of a new VY HSV Clubsport at the Watson Holden
    dealers after a 19 year old test drove it last week. He was driving it
    back and was going WAY too fast around the corner, up the gutter,
    travelled the 10 mtrs to the gates, mounted some cars and landed as you
    see.

    Well you know what they say, If a jobs worth doing, It's worth doing properly lol. All jokes aside, was anyone hurt? I gather he was test driving it by himself and not one of the holden sales people riding shotgun.

    Geez, it's getting around everywhere....

    From: http://www.ls1.com.au/forum/showthread.php?t=35595 on Sunday night, and also on street commodores kicking off on monday morning, and now here.....

    The story gets taller every time you hear it!

    It was actually a 23 year old in his OWN car, insured in his mothers name who did that.
    He was fleeing a police officer & approached speeds of 160+km/h before losing it.

    It is still debatable about whether or not the copper was on or off duty...

    You can read more about it here:
    http://www.ls1.com.au/forum/showthread.php?t=35595

    Where there's even a phone number of the dealer's service dept where the mechanics are more than happy to tell the tale!

    I heard the same thing bout the 23 year old.
    Apparently the cop was off duty chasing him in his own SS or something.
    The dude went up the gutter or launched if you prefer, then jumped offa the BMW onto the other cars. :w00t:
    What a cock!!!!!! :bop:
    People wonder why they want to limit car size . . . :ranting:

    Well if you guys want the real truth just ask me, I work for Rolfe Holden Braddon and just about every holden dealer knows about it and I can tell you for a fact that it was a test drive and the sales assistant was in the car at the time! FOR MORE DETAILS JUST ASK.

    Ok, Full Story
    The young lad was test driving the clubby and he was not alone test driving the car, A sales person (Who wil remain nameless of obvious reasons) was with him at the time. They went for a bit of a test drive around and back in the home street the lad put his foot down "to test the acceleration" of the car, only to loose control and crash right into the dealership itself.

    Unfortnally the sales person had no real control over the car and that's how it happend. It was not his mum's car, it was no his car. I have no idea where to rumor came from but yes if you want to hear the story ring them and ask them.

    I am not too sure of the outcome but I can say that sales person no longer works there and there was an agreed setlement between the lad and the dealership.

    I just wanted to put to rest the rumors that it was his mum's car/his car. It was a demo which belonged to the yard. There was no cop chase or the alike either just a stupid act on his behalf.

    Cheers.
