...and went on driving on three wheels masterfully, until the rally reached
public roads. There his car was taken off the road by 'HM Fuzz' as Phil
puts it, for being unsafe.

And all-British equipe did the same thing later in the rally. The police
asked them to stop the car, female co-driver smiled sweetly at the
constable and they were allowed to go on- with a police escort, no less
(no, not the car).

Things that make you go 'Hmmm'...
