Caught at 119 km / h in a zone limited to 60 km / h, the driver of this blue BMW explained to the police that he thought he was on a circuit. Which was half true.
If you know the most beautiful racing circuits in the world, the name of Mount Panorama is certainly no stranger to you. This legendary route, located on a small mountain in Australia, is regularly used for endurance events. It is known for its very hilly and demanding route.
When not closed for racing, the Mount Panorama route is a single portion of the City of Bathurst road. Like the large circuit of the 24 Hours of Le Mans or Pau, it is simply closed to traffic during race weekends. Intercepted by the police at 119 km / h instead of 60 km / h, the driver of the blue BMW below explained to the officer that he thought he was on a racetrack. Which is therefore half true but unfortunately does not exempt it from speed limits.
Over 1500 euros fine
The man was fined 2520 Australian dollars, or just over 1500 euros. He also took a six-month license suspension.
