The BMW M4 and Audi RS e-tron GT apparently competed in a race of up to 200 km/h in Kassel. The exercise ended in a costly accident.

Sometimes it can be strange on German roads. Recently, a type of “country road duel” between two drivers ended in a physical altercation that even ended up in the hospital for one of the rivals. And in Hamburg, the police seized a Kia and a Mercedes where the drivers had fled at high speed. Now there was an alleged car race in Kassel – an alleged high-speed frenzy of up to 200 kilometers per hour ended in a costly accident. Fortunately no one was injured.

Audi RS e-tron GT vs. BMW M4: One of the fastest was drunk

The driver’s license of the 40-year-old Audi driver and the car accident were found. Police tracked the BMW driver, who initially fled, to his home address. His M4 was undamaged, but officers determined the man may have been driving under the influence of drugs – and took him to the station to have his blood drawn. Additional cases were initiated against him for drunken driving. Similar to the recent case in North Rhine-Westphalia, both men are now being investigated for prohibited racing, which is punishable by up to five years in prison.
