German police have seized 120 sports cars that were taking part in a suspected road race across Europe، as the Guardian said.
Cars including Porsches، Lamborghinis and Audis were stopped on Thursday on the A20 east of Wismar، in north-east Germany، on a stretch of the autobahn without speed restrictions.
Concerned drivers had notified authorities after some of the cars were witnessed travelling at estimated speeds of up to 155mph.
Most of the cars carried Norwegian licence plates and bore windshield stickers with the name of the event، Eurorally. According to the Eurorally website، the event costs up to €799 to enter and consists of four legs، starting in Oslo and ending up in Prague. The second leg، on Thursday، took drivers from Kiel in Germany to Szczecin in Poland.
The website’s terms and conditions state that Eurorally is “not a competition” but merely a “holiday planner for car enthusiasts”.
“We aim to give you a once-in-a-lifetime experience holiday consisting of great events taking place in multiple countries along the route،” the website reads. “There will be parties at each destination، and at the final destination in Prague we will be hosting a farewell party where participants will be given awards in various categories.” Edited by Ahmed Moamar
