Stealing a race car is no easy task, we'd all agree. But stealing a race car and taking it out for a spin on the highway less than an hour later? That takes some brass ones.

According to the BBC, the Subaru Impreza was stolen from the Santa Pod track in Bedfordshire, and the unknown thief spun it around the M25, the highway encircling London. (For an amazing description of the hell that is that highway, click here.) The car was later abandoned west of London, and the thief, who clearly took start-and-park to a new level, remains at large.
