In the video, Basset is seen drifting and doing doughnuts in his Lexus, putting other road users at risk.

The driver was charged with dangerous driving, had to attend rehabilitation appointments and was banned from driving for 15 months.

He was also sentenced to 200 hours of community work and to pay £85 court costs and a £95 surcharge.

Reflecting on the sentence, Wiltshire Police assistant chief constable Deb Smith said: “We welcome the sentence handed down to Bassett.

“His actions represented severely reckless behaviour and clear danger to those present and the wider public.

“Operation Staysail remains focussed on relentlessly pursuing those who are responsible for creating hazardous situations on our roads whilst participating in disruptive car meets.

“We will continue to seek the strongest possible sanctions in such cases.”

The video has had more than 73,000 views and 380 comments, and most Facebook users agree with the sentence.

One man said: “Of course, he is good at drifting.

“Until he hits your family or a child..some people see what’s wrong but yet blind themselves to the truth.”

Another revealed: “Saw that car doing the same thing on South Marston roundabout a while back, nearly hit someone – was really scary seeing it close up.”
