Gumball3000/ Belgian leg

 

Belgian way to welcome the Gumball3000 participants : about 140 policemen, lots of radars and multanovas flashing (we saw 4 of them over a distance of abt 40 kms of highway....) and as top of the bill, a road block/trap on the highway in Spy .... Some drivers lost their drivers' licence, others had to pay "fat" speeding tickets or even had to modify their cars...
