The report says this is more or less what did happen. The accelerator was
faulty, the brakes were unable to slow him down, and he couldn't put the car
in neutral because "the gears were jammed" (whatever that means). Luckily his
phone seems to have been a hands-free one, otherwise this could have been a
really dangerous situation. It really wasn't his day, was it?

Let us just suppose there is any (ANY!) basis of reality to this hoax.
SO WHAT if he DID engage the freakin' steering lock!
He's supposedly (SUPPOSEDLY!!!) standing on the brake pedal already.
At 130 mph.
Supposedly with fried brakes.
Just how much steering do you suppose you'd have while standing on fried
brakes at 130 mph anyway?!?
Just *look* at this twit. He's obviously a fucktard who couldn't hold on to
130 mph for TEN SECONDS, never mind 30 minutes....
It's just a matter of time that they figure out that - from the jump to the
"crash" - he never left the one cellular tower they found him at in the end...
No, I'm absolutely correct. You judging the driver by the way he looks
is exactly as bad as assuming that a black man is a criminal by the way
*he* looks. Ergo, you (and a surprising number of other part-time
*wight-ons* round here) are a low-life.
“There was another guy in the fast lane,” Mr Nicolle said. “I tried to
go through and the guy sped up. He wouldn’t let me through. What was
he thinking? I had my hazard lights on and there was a helicopter
above. I was inches from the back of the truck and the car.” He
managed to thread the BMW between the two vehicles.
Note "There was a helicopter above".

Do NOT look into laser with remaining eyeball!
"A police helicopter tracked his terrifying journey and four motorway
patrol cars chased him trying to help him to stop but none could keep up
with him as he raced down the A1M flashing his lights and sounding his
horn to warn other drivers."
Well, we're getting closer, but those aren't the interesting quotes - as they
aren't actually attributed to any person(s) in particular. The interesting
quote appears near the bottom of the second article - and as attributed to an
actual official - is this one:
'A Nottinghamshire Police spokesman, in charge of the subsequent
investigation, said: "Kevin was monitored doing in excess of 100mph and is
lucky to have walked away with very minor injuries.'
As long as "monitored" does not mean "we listened to his account on the
telephone" I'll concede there may be more truth than fiction to this story ;-)
