The Swift driver can be seen driving rashly through the ground and trying to slide the car. After couple of slides, the driver attempts to do donuts in reverse while all the people were still hanging out from the car. While all of this is happening, we can see many people on the ground with flags of their favourite team. Sometime, the car was dangerously close to the people watching the stunts. After the Swift, a Toyota Etios Liva started performing similar stunts. In this case also, the car was being driven rashly and there were people sitting in the boot and also hanging out from the window.
