i say try it at home if you have the room and its safe to do so and your neighbors wont bitch about it, i say this because you did it in a car park and the cop fined you

Gravel + speed (donuts) = chipped as hell side skirts and lower rear quarters.
Really fun, but I wouldn't do it on gravel because of all the paint damage, better to do it when it's snowy, you'll slide even more that way:rocks:

If a cop did that here in Canada, I think it could be beaten in court, since you would not have broken any of the highway and traffic act laws. Being on private property, all they could do is charge you with trespassing, with the lot owner having to make a complaint.

You should check into the laws there. Maybe the same applies.

Theres no such thing as nobodys property...somebody has to own it.

Yeah in the States if it's private property and there aren't any signs posted about trespassing or loitering the police really cannot give you a ticket for this kind of rough housing.
