Speeding Ferrari driver sidelined, fined

VANCOUVER — Mounties say they’re appalled by the actions of a Ferrari driver from Langley, B.C., who used area roads as his personal race track.

Cpl. Robert McDonald says not only was the F430 sports car clocked at speeds 101 kilometres above the posted 80-kilometre limit, the 49-year-old was not travelling alone.

McDonald says a young child was in the seat beside him.

Both were OK but had to find another way home after the April 19 incident when the high-end race car was immediately impounded for seven days.

The man was also handed a $483 ticket for excessive speed.

Officers say the case is even more unsettling because the driver knew he was stopped at the same Surrey intersection where two vehicles collided almost a year ago, killing six people, including five from the same family.
