    RCMP arrest Zahir Rana and 4 others for speeding on Alberta highways w/ exotic cars!

    I've been away on holiday for a couple of weeks, so this isn't hot off the press. Anyway's, for those that haven't been reading the papers or watching the local news, the @#$% has hit the fan finally here in Calgary with Rana and his posse - and personally I can't be more happy. I've driven the stretch of road these guys did this 'one' video on. Nice stretch. Doesn't mean it should be used to hit top speed. Lots of track events in controlled arenas here in Calgary. I personally choose to do the track where one can hit a solid 250km/h over and over again on the front straight- with the right car - on the right day.

    I saw his video and those guys are clowns for doing this on public roads.

    I got pulled over in Longview on highway 40 just before this ZR thing made the news and the local constable just went off on me. Said he could charge me with speeding and driving without due care and attention......I had no idea what he was talking about since I wasn't even speeding. I think he pulled me over just to make some sort of point and give me an earfull...no ticket issued or warranted for that matter. Then I heard about this ZR thing and checked with an RC friend of mine and he said lots of high end cars were getting pulled over due to local complaints in that area.....I guess I fit the bill....

    The really unfortunate part is what happened with RJ. Now if a few of us get together to go for a cruise we will be watched, pulled over and possibly fined for any minor infraction so that the Police can actually be "cracking down" on this kind of behaviour. Thanks alot Zahir! Why, with all of the supposed money couldn't these guys have rented some track time to see what their cars can do? This will definitely spoil some harmless fun.

    This was done at Race City more for acceleration aspects than top end aspects obviously. I'll post more on what I know when I have a bit more time.

    Yes, this video was linked by the media in a couple of the first links. It's on Streetfire, and YouTube also.
