It never surprises us to hear that a young man has taken out a supercar for a little joyride and has to sit on the side of the road to call his parents and ask for a ride while waiting for the punishment that is sure to come. In this case the one in hot water would be the father.
Anthony Hamilton took someoneâ€™s Porsche Carrera GT out for a ride and ran it into a hedge about a hundred meters away from his family home that is in the village of Tewin. Naturally he had to call his son â€“ Lewis â€“ to give him a ride home and possibly a tow truck.
According to the press Anthony Hamilton lost control of the car on a part of the road that was â€˜greasyâ€™. Given the proximity to the Hamilton home and the GT’s reputation for snap over steer, it’s pretty easy to imagine what happened.
