Race driver, free driver's license.

On the Swedish stage, the World Rally Championship in 2011 there was a confusion with the Norwegian driver Petter Solberg. When the driver just drove to the highway on a public road, a policeman stopped him for speeding at 30 km / h. By Swedish law a violation entails a temporary driving ban and a ban on driving, even on special routes, albeit with a delay of execution in 48 hours. Therefore, the first two days of rally Solberg drove the machine itself. In the third and final day, he sat behind the wheel ... his co-driver Chris Patterson, who had never run a race car, but, nevertheless, not dropped below the fifth position.
