This is the moment a souped up race car rolled off the back of a trailer while the transport vehicle was driving down a road.

Andrew Jackson was coming off the M40 at Cherwell Valley when his dashcam captured the moment the car left the white trailer as it approached a roundabout.

It is unclear what model the car was but onlookers believe it was a 'race-tuned' Dutton track car.

Andrew Jackson was coming off the M40 at Cherwell Valley when his dashcam captured the moment the car left the white trailer as it approached a roundabout.

Andrew, 55, said it was set up for racing with a "roll cage, a huge rear spoiler, stripped interior and a bank of toggle switches" and no passenger seat.

He said: "I just laughed. Obviously if it happened on the M40 it would have been completely different."

Software engineer Andrew, from Alcester, Warwickshire, said traffic came to a stand still as all the lorry drivers and other road users got out to help.

Some cars swerved the trailer, which had stopped on the roundabout, while six people helped the panic-stricken driver put the car back in the trailer.

He added: "When I got back into the car I stopped the dashcam so I knew where it was.

"As soon as I got back I showed my wife and daughter and sent it out to my other daughter in Portugal. They all had a good laugh."

The video was shot on March 12 as Andrew took his 23-year-old daughter to Luton Airport for her flight back to Lisbon where she is a teacher.
