A 25-year-old man charged in connection to a red Corvette incident on Kenmount Road last spring is going to trial.

This image was taken from a Facebook video by someone who witnessed a red Corvette doing doughnuts on Kenmount Road in St. John's May 21, 2015.

Wilson K. Barrett was represented by his lawyer Johnathan McDonald when his case was called today in provincial court in St. John's.

McDonald entered a not-guilty plea on behalf of his client, who is charged with dangerous driving.

The trial has been scheduled for April 13-14.

Barrett was charged following the incident on the busy St. John's street on May 21 of last year. It garnered plenty of media attention at the time.

A video of a man driving dangerously in the vehicle was shared widely on social media, and police looked for the driver for weeks.

    He got money. Let him be. Stop using my money to fund a make work project in court that will ultimately not charge this son of a man with money.
