Declan Webster lost control of his Toyota Corolla after racing through the streets of Chesterfield with two other drivers – topping speeds of 84mph.
The trio – including brothers Michael and Robert Bower – had spent several hours in a beer garden before driving off in their vehicles and racing each other in Brimington Road North in August 2020.
