Undercover Golf R32 stops 4 Ferrari's

A couple days ago Dutch tv-show Wegmisbruikers showed four exclusive Ferrari’s that participated in the private Ferrari Challenge 2007 on the A79 highway leading out of Maastricht. Two weeks ago Wegmisbruikers showed a crazy Porsche GT3 driver that first tried to lose the chasing undercover police car and then crashed the precious Porsche. This time it was a Ferrari Enzo, Ferrari F50, Ferrari 360 Modena Spider and a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti that drove slightly faster then the allowed maximum speed. An undercover police Golf R32, modified so it looks like a regular Golf, followed them for a while and then stopped them after they clocked the drivers at an average speed of 195 km/h. Four driver licenses were confiscated but thanks to a good lawyer they were returned a mere two days later.

The end of the video shows Dutch transportation official Koos Spee in ‘discussion’ with the presenter André van der Toorn about events that visit the Dutch roads with fast and exotic cars clearly referring to the Gumball 3000 that had a checkpoint in Amsterdam in May of this year. Koos Spee states the Dutch authorities are looking into these events and will try even harder to prevent exotics from speeding on the Dutch roads in the future.

The Ferrari Challenge 2007 was organised by Dutch car collector Harrie van de Moesdijk. He owns an impressive collection of Ferrari’s and once a year he takes them out with a couple of friends. This time the route went from the Audi & Bentley specialist VD Akker in the Dutch town of Best to Berlin, Munchen, Zurich, Luxemburg, Valkenburg to return in Best.
