A BRITAIN FIRST supporter gave a Nazi salute and shouted: “White power” before driving at a curry house owner, a court heard yesterday.
Marek Zakrocki, 48, threatened to “kill a Muslim” before launching his attack outside Spicy Night in Harrow, north-west London.
The defendant, who was originally charged with attempted murder, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and battering his wife.
Prosecutor Denis Barry said: “It’s plain that his conduct is very likely to have been motivated by his views about our diverse society.”
During the rampage on June 23 , Mr Zakrocki was also heard to say: “I’m going to kill a Muslim. I’m doing it for Britain.”
Following an altercation in the street, he drove his van at 5mph at restaurant owner Kamal Ahmed.
Police found a nazi coin in Mr Zakrocki’s pocket and a stash of Britain First flyers and newspapers at his home in Harrow.
In interview, he said he had made donations to Britain First in the past.
Judge Anthony Leonard QC remanded the defendant into custody to be sentenced on January 12.
