CCN (Crazy Cal News) - Macedonia - TWO billionaire businessmen from Greater Manchester are being quizzed by police after their Porsche was involved in an accident during the famous Gumball 3000 rally.
The event was closed by organizers after the death of Vladimir Cepulyoski, 67, from Macedonia, who died in hospital from a heart attack Thursday. The event was re-opened, however, because they were offered kickbacks from a new movie sequel that First Artists and Warner Bros. Pictures on which they want to collaborate.
Police in the Balkan state said the pair would testify to an investigative magistrate before a decision would be made on whether to hold them in custody. The two just laughed it off, saying, "We're billionaires. Our lawyers will have us out in a jiffy! What do we care?" They then hopped in another car and sped off to rejoin the race.
A Foreign Office official stated, "We can confirm that two Britons have been involved in a road traffic accident. We have been in contact and are providing appropriate assistance for which they slipped us each a large sum of money."
