They also denounced nine other British drivers that were circulating at that time reaching speeds between 175 and 206 kilometres per hour.

According to sources from the Salamanca Command, the cars belonged to a Nissan owners’ clubs. All the vehicles were the same GT-R model. At that time, they were crossing the Iberian Peninsula to Lisbon (Portugal).
