Kent, England – Gentlemen start your engines – wait a minute, he’s no gentleman!

A regular Volkswagen snuck from a pit lane onto the track while an actual race was in progress, even as his screaming female passenger tried to grab the wheel to stop her boyfriend.

It happened at the Brands Hatch Circuit in Kent, England. VW Beetles were in the midst of a 4-hour race called the fun cup, when this gatecrasher hit the track.

A passenger riding in back shot the stunt.

Not laughing was the chief executive of the group that owns the track. “I am extremely angry that this idiot acted in such a reckless way. He endangered the lives of the drivers racing, the marshals and his own passengers.

The racers reached speeds of up to 110 miles per hour, while the gatecrasher told The Sun he was doing 70 to 80.

Kent police aren’t releasing the 21-year old man’s name, but he told the Daily Mail “you only live once and I live every day like it’s my last.”

Officials stopped the race. Then restarted it again half an hour later – minus the interloper, who finally did as his girlfriend begged and stopped the car.
