Xzibit Loses Drivers License In Holland, Hit and Run Leaves Man Dead
The Gumball 3000 is an annual 3000 mile international tour that occurs on public roads, typically in Europe.
The event, which is modeled after coast-to-coast competitions in the United States, includes stops at tourist attractions or in large urban centers.
Film, television, music, fashion, and modeling celebrities traditionally compete in the annual event.
Xzibit, who hosts MTV's hit automotive series Pimp My Ride, was among a group of rally participants who, according to reports, were pulled over on Sunday (Apr. 29) by Holland as the cars passed through the Netherlands.
Xzibit was one of seven drivers who had their licenses taken by the police. The rapper was reportedly driving 100 mph in a 60 mph speedzone.
After paying the fine, Xzibit's teammate Farid Nassar assumed driving duties for the rapper's Lamborghini Gallardo.
Over 70 drivers were cited for speeding as the procession sped through Germany.
The race is now in jeopardy, after a 67-year-old man was killed and his wife critically injured in a hit and run accident involving British drivers Nick Morley and Matthew McConville in Macedonia on May 3.
The pair were driving a Porsche at high speed when they struck a VW Golf.
Morley and McConville allegedly climbed out of the Porsche and into a BMW and attempted to leave the country.
Local police arrested the two men at the border.
"All of the sponsors, including adidas, who sponsored Xzibit, basically dropped out after that," the source said.
