Drivers caught racing at over 200 km/h down Bishop Grandin: Winnipeg police
Drivers facing numerous charges; Porsche, BMW impounded
Bishop Grandin Boulevard looked like a scene out of The Fast and the Furious Thursday, Winnipeg police say — and they weren't amused.
The drivers of a Porsche and a BMW were caught racing each other near Bishop Grandin and River Road — reaching a speed of 204 kilometres an hour, police said Saturday.
The speed limit on Bishop Grandin is 80 km/h.
"Not the BEST way to rep the '204,'" the Winnipeg Police Service tweeted Saturday morning.
The two drivers each face numerous charges, and both cars have been impounded.
