    "Nick Morley and Matthew McConville who according to a report from Metro.co.uk

    ...have been arrested in Macedonia after an alleged hit and run incident which left one man dead and his wife fighting for her life.
    The 67-year-old died on his way to hospital and his wife was in a critical condition after a Porsche taking part in the super car race crossed the road at speed and ploughed into their VW Golf...

    ...The drivers of the Porsche 911 Turbo Techart which Macedonian TV station A1 named as Nick Morley and Matthew McConville, allegedly got out of their crashed car and ran off. The station said they later climbed into another car, a BMW, and tried to leave the country.
    But eye witnesses alerted police and the pair were arrested at the border. "

    There is already an open discussion in the Sports car board. However yes, this is the car, #74. You also get a good look at it at 4:10.

    Trying to leave the country? Look like they will be in jail for a while.

    This is Macedonia my friend...a little cash here and there... I'm happy that the Gumball "officials" had at least the decency to stop the whole event.

    I know that the Gumball is fascinating but such a "race" can only work if it is official, meaning with closed streets and police escort. Since this would probably wipe away the "adventure" character of the Gumball event, I doubt that many drivers would participate.

    I dont agree with you Rc.. When someoned is dead and when all the media know the fact money cant help..
    Money help when media are out of the game...

    Re: 997TT involved in fatal Gumball 3000 accident

    They damn right should be arrested : nothing more anti social than running off after having caused or been involved in an accident !!

    Re: 997TT involved in fatal Gumball 3000 accident

    In NY State leaving the scene of an accident is a crime and leaving the scene of an accident involving bodily injury an/or death is a very serious crime, a felony, punishable with years of jailtime, if convicted. Additionally, recklessly causing anothers death through vehicular manslaughter is also a very serious crime. All the money in the world wouldn't help them in NY. I know, a friends child, age 19, pled guilty with no prior offenses, to vehicular manslaughter (drag racing on a public road) and was sentenced to 3 to 5 years in State Prison - hard time for no prior offenses. If it was your father, brother or son killed by the TT driver how would you feel ?
