The Maidstone Bridge
By Ben
 

Every weekend St. Peters street in Maidstone is home to our local cruise.  The Bridge as it's known, is found just off the one way system that runs over the river.  Every Friday and Saturday night people come from all over to show off their cars,  do burn outs and a lot of doughnuts.  Recently we all gather in the Courts car park and the action kicks off at nine.

The local police often come down in force bringing Riot Vans, Volvo T5's, under cover CID cars, and the usual panda cars.  But unless your caught in the middle of a race or hand brake turn, it's unusual that you will be stopped for anything other than a warning.

A red Sierra pulls a perfect hand brake turn behind a police car which the law took a dim view too.

This bloke complained about a knocking when turning corners.  The hole is where the suspension should be!


It turns out that this nutters mates know my little sister!

Nice little line up

The owner of this Nova was so impressed with how clean he'd got it that...

The week after we took these pictures he went and wrote it off!
