8700 euros of speeding fines for 12 rally drivers
12 drivers at ADAC Rallye Deutschland, which will officially start tonight, must pay speeding fines because they were too fast at official pre-event recce. Before every race, drivers and co-drivers have a possibility to drive through the special stages and make pace-notes, but they must keep to the speed limitations as in the normal traffic.
Drivers who are too fast sometimes get caught, sometimes not, but this time at German roads twelve of them were caught in speeding violation. Qatari driver Nasser Al-Attiyah was caught twice, so he will pay the biggest amount – 1675 euros. Some other offenders are Kris Meeke, Andreas Mikkelsen, Ott Tanak, Eric Camilli, Jourdan Serderidis, Andrea Crugnola, Romain Dumas, Jaroslav Melicharek…
Total amount of all fines is 8700 euros, for speeding between 20 and 30 km/h above the limit. Fastest was Kris Meeke, caught up with 82 km/h at place with a 50 km/h speed limit. He must pay 800 euros, while other fines are ranging between 500 and 725 euros.
