British Columbia Mounties have impounded 13-high end sports cars following an alleged street race in Metro Vancouver on Wednesday afternoon. Around 3:30 pm yesterday afternoon, police received reports of high-end cars racing southbound along Highway 99 in the area of George Massey tunnel.

Witnesses reported that the cars were travelling in excess of 200 km/h (120 mph), and on several occasions, the sports cars would travel side by side to block traffic, allowing their friends in front to race. Thirteen drivers were pulled over and their cars are worth a total of more than $2 million.

The vehicles involved in the race include a, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Nissan GT-R and Aston Martin. RCMP Insp. Bryon Massie said, ”The majority of them had personalized plates as well and were souped-up, so they’re fairly distinguished and the witnesses had no problem in providing us with the descriptors that were tracked back to the vehicles.”

Many of the sports cars had green “N” stickers in their rear windshields, as part of B.C’s graduated licensing system. Massie said, “The drivers of the vehicles are all in around the age of 20 years old. They’re all new drivers. The majority of them do not have their full driver’s licence status — they’re still in the ‘N’ new category.”

    You have to ask,what sort of parent would buy their young kids cars od this caliber???

    Answer: Only a ignorant (and maybe a little bit stupid) one. Money sure does blind some people.

    Shame on them

    Most if these were spoiled mainland Chinese immigrants. The photo shows one with personalized plates reading “Zhu”, a Chinese name. This is a huge issue in B.C., with spoiled Chinese kids doing nothing but spending money, gambling, drinking, etc.

    Obviously they are addicted to speed. The city of Vancouver should give them a section of Hastings street so they can do what they want, with no consequences.

  • jim

    i agree with marv they need there own section with no consequences and most likely the cops where a**”s anyway coming from a former street racer

    @waegt

    Cry more.

    It’s no worry for them, mommy and daddy will pay off everyone so the kids get off with a slap on the wrist :)

    Leave these kids alone. They are victims .. suffering from Femtoweenie sinensis. They need to make up for their serious medical conditions by acting cool and doing stupid things – hence street racing exotic supercars. I’m sure their fathers did exactly the same thing. They are VICTIMS, I tell you, VICTIMS.

  • Rob

    At least they blocked off traffic……… its worse when they are weaving in-and-out of traffic!

    And… the cars were pretty tastefully modified. Beautiful vehicles, and much better than what we see some older folks do to these exotics.

  • Rob

    And btw…. they were all released with $196 fine, and 6 points. Cars are released. One kid didn’t even have a Canadian license, he handed over a Chinese drivers license LOL

  • dc

  • dc
