UK police seize Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren for racing

British police have seized three high end supercars that were racing on a major motorway.

Police said Monday they have seized a Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren after they were being raced on the M1 highway.

The expensive cars had been rented. Police warned others using similar tactics to race on highways will have their cars impounded.

The three drivers are accused of driving very slowly on the highway so traffic backed up behind them, then racing at top speeds when they had enough open road ahead.

Other drivers reported them to police and their tactics were captured by closed circuit cameras.
