Gumball 3000 meets the police

Last night the Gumball rally arrived on the mainland after departing from London on Sunday afternoon. The Dutch police managed to take the drivers license of 7 Gumball drives. The drivers were racing with speeds over 200 kilometers per hour and as a fine doesn't help a lot for these wealthy men, the police decided to take their drivers license. The police also took 2 cars, one of them is a Porsche 997 Turbo from Team 73 Devil Fish.

The Dutch police used 14 police vehicles and 7 undercover vehicles for the pursuit of the rally drivers. Checks were held at highways A1, A2 and A27 in the Netherlands. Rapper Xzibit wasn't lucky, he had to hand over his drivers license to the police so his co-driver had to take over the wheel. Not bad if you keep in mind their was is a Lamborghini Gallardo.

The story isn't over yet. The German police had set up a trap 100 kilometers ahead of Frankfurt Hahn airport. Almost all Gumballers were stopped there. You can find pictures of the German trap here.
