'I've seen worse on Road Wars' NEWS WIRE.

A MAN smashed a scrambler bike into a car during a police chase and then told cops: "It was dangerous, but I've seen worse on Road Wars".

Mark Clarke, 21, raced through red lights and sped past pedestrians while being followed by a force helicopter.

The seven-minute chase only came to an abrupt halt when he slammed into the side of a BMW on Sherwood Lane and was sent flying over the car.

Clarke, of Blackbrook Close, Walton, admitted dangerous driving, driving without insurance and driving without a licence at Liverpool Magistrates' Court. Andrew Page, prosecuting, said the incident took place at around 8pm on April 4. The court heard Clarke tried to hide, taking off his top and crawling behind trees, but was caught by police dogs and arrested.

When interviewed, he told officers: "It was dangerous but I've seen worse on Road Wars."

Scott Phillips, defending Clarke, conceded it was a serious case of dangerous driving. Magistrates sent the case to Liverpool Crown Court for sentencing on June 21.
