It has been reported that Remi Gervais, a wine grower from Montagnac, in southern France has been accused of travelling at 150 kph on his ancient tractor.
This is despite his claim that his 30 year-old tractor can only reach 30 kph even downhill. “I think that I’d have more chance of winning the lottery than reaching that speed.”
The number plate of M Gervais tractor was caught by a speed camera in Namur in Belgium, 1,000 km from his home, travelling at 30 kph above the 120 kph speed limit.
M Gervais is likely to be the victim of Number Plate cloning
(Incidentally the World record for a specially-tuned tractor is just over 130 kph, unless we have a new World Record for M Gervais)
