Lomas, 22, then purposely drove his car at the Suzuki, knocking the man off the bike, before running over him.
Lomas and his passenger, Callum Gervis, 21, approached the man on the ground, but after realising he wasn’t the person they intended to hit, they dragged him on to the pavement and then ran from the scene.
