THE Guardia Civil have charged 41 drivers in the annual Modball Rally Europa, which this year runs from London to Ibiza, with various offences.
The event is an amateur affair that takes around eight days using generally modified performance vehicles and organisers stress that local traffic laws must be adhered to. However, competitors have a history of bending or breaking the law, particularly when it comes to speeding.
A total of 58 vehicles were stopped and 34 reported for speeding, including one car doing 208 kmph. Three drivers tested positive for drugs and four more were charged with dangerous driving.
