A motorist was caught on camera while driving on a Czech motorway in a formula racing car.

It is not everyday that motorists get to witness a formula racing car in direct comparison with regular vehicles on a public motorway. On Sunday, a video of just such an occurrence was shared on social media and quickly accumulated more than 3.3 million views.

Sources have since revealed that the scene was filmed on the D4 motorway between Příbram and Dobříš in the Czech Republic. And apparently it was also not the first time that the driver in question took his formula car out for a spin.

According to Auto Live Magazine, the driver was already seen on public motorways in 2018 and 2019. The vehicle was initially mistaken for a Formula 1 car, but is in fact a Dallara GP2 from 2008, which is classified as Formula 2.

Although the person who took the video has indicated that the racing vehicle escaped the grasp of the police, local authorities have stated that they identified a suspect, who thus far denied any connection to the incident.

The driver is in risk of receiving a €400 fine and having his license revoked for a year.
