It didn’t take long for a few of this years Gumball 3000 competitors to get into a little more trouble than they bargained for.
The benefit that most competitors have is that they are foreigners, and having their license suspended in a foreign land is no big deal, and if they have the money to participate in the rally a few thousand dollars worth of speeding tickets probably won’t affect them too much.
However, it has been reported that a few of the drivers pacing themselves at ridiculous speeds, like 170 MPH, have been getting a little more than a slap on the wrist.
A handful of the speeders have won themselves a set of matching bracelets, and have ended up behind bars.
Unfortunately for the owner of the Veyeron being loaded onto the back of a flat bed tow truck, he won’t be seeing his prized Bugatti anytime in the near future.
