A police car took the brunt of the damage after police disrupted a meetup.

The car received minor damage while officers tried to stop boy racers from entering Sawyers Arms Road.

Police responded to the boy racers at 11pm on Saturday night.

They said the racers were disorderly, but no one was arrested.

The Facebook event stated that the goal was to, "bring old school times back" for the weekend.

The source of the footage said that they didn't agree with the actions taken on the night.
