It didn’t take long for the millionaires’ Modball Rally to run into trouble shortly after reaching French shores…
Seven top-end cars were stopped by French traffic police on Sunday just south of Calais after three vehicles registered 233 kph on the A26 motorway and many others ignored the 130 kph speed limit. A number of drivers have been summoned to appear at the Saint Omer Criminal Court. Police sources told the local press that among the cars stopped were a Lamborghini Huracan and a Mercedes AMG.
A number of drivers paid fines of 750 euros on the spot and had to continue the rally as passengers. A total of 180 participants, mainly British, paid up to 5,000 euros each to join the event, which takes in Paris, Lyon, Monaco and Barcelona, finishing on Friday night in Valencia.
