Solidarity sends a mad car to lake (11)


I believe the answer is:


'solidarity' is the definition.

'sends a mad car to lake' is the wordplay.
'sends' is an anagram indicator (send can mean excite or stir).
'to lake' becomes 'erie' (Lake Erie is one of the Canadian/US 'Great Lakes').
'amadcar' with letters rearranged gives 'camarad'.

(Other definitions for camaraderie that I've seen before include "Friendly sociability" , "Mutual trust and friendship" , "Friendly feeling" , "all that backslapping?" , "Spirit of friendliness and trust" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
