Mini at Mach 3 speed

A Belgium motorist was left stunned after authorities sent him a speeding

ticket for travelling in his Mini at three times the speed of sound.  The ticket claimed the man had been caught driving at 3380 kph (2,100 mph) - or Mach 3 speed - in a Brussels suburb, a Belgian newspaper reported.  However, police later admitted that a faulty radar had been responsible for the Mini's incredible feat.  The police have since apologised to the man and promised to fix the radar.
