In Mulegns GR, the Graubünden police caught an international speeding group on Friday. As reported by the Graubünden canton police, 19 speed drivers were flashed, including many speeders.
The vehicles were flashed shortly after 11 a.m. on the national road. The cars were traveling at speeds between 98 and 165. Speeding is anyone who exceeds the signposted maximum speed by at least 60 km/h outside of built-up areas. This was the case with four drivers.
“Donkervoort” sports car costs over 200,000 francs
The police spokesman Roman Rüegg told the Keystone-SDA news agency on Friday that the group, consisting of 19 vehicles from the Dutch brand “Donkervoort”, was already known to the police. Converted, a car from the “Donkervoort” brand costs at least 216,000 francs.
It is currently assumed that the drivers are mostly men around the age of 50. However, the exact data would still be evaluated.
Research by Keystone-SDA revealed that the vehicle manufacturer offered this tour from Austria via Switzerland to northern Italy on its website. He advertised that the participants could enjoy “full driving pleasure and beautiful panoramic views at the exclusive event”. The six-day tour costs around 8,500 euros for two people. There were nationals from the Netherlands, Belgium, Monaco, Spain, Germany and France.
The police took away the driver’s license of twelve drivers from the sports car group on the spot. Except for one driver, who was able to pay his fine of 240 francs directly, all would be reported to the public prosecutor, it said. Four drivers are still wanted, officials said. (SDA)
