Video hoon condemned by company

Gareth Thomas and John DobsonAlbany Advertiser

A video posted online of a man performing a burnout on CSBP land in Albany has been condemned by the company and is being investigated.

The 1 minute, 35 second video, uploaded to video site YouTube, shows a white ute parked against a wall in a disused concrete fuel storage tank near Hanrahan Road.

The ute performs a long burnout, producing plumes of smoke before one of its tyres appears to explode.

The driver then gets out of the car while the vehicle continues to spin its rear tyres.

The description of the video provided by the user suggests the driver engaged cruise control to enable the car to perform a “ghost skid”.

The site is one of several disused concrete tanks on CSBP land, built in World War II, which are prone to graffiti vandalism and illegal off-road activities.

A CSBP spokeswoman said the company was taking the video seriously and wanted to highlight that hoon behaviour was not acceptable.

“CSBP will investigate fully to determine what needs to be done to ensure the site remains secure,” she said.

CSBP has owned the land since 1983 and said the site had been secured with fencing, gates and signs to warn against trespassing.
