A MOTORCYCLIST who chased and filmed his best friend at speeds of more than 170mph before he was killed in a road smash has walked free from court.
Fred Bowden, 42, strapped a camera to his bike and followed Andrew Prowse, 46, as the pair broke the speed limit 30 times in 20 minutes.
Bowden filmed his best mate for 25 miles until he clipped a hatchback car on his Kawasaki ZX10R and was thrown under an oncoming camper van.
The horrific smash – in which Mr Prowse died instantly after his legs and head were ripped off – was caught on camera by Bowden. A father-of-four, Bowden, was then knocked off his own Kawasaki 1000cc ZX10-R by the flying wreckage of Mr Prowse's machine.
