22-year-old Ferrari driver fined for another high-speed bridge run

A 22-year-old West Vancouver man who received public attention this summer after being clocked by police going 210 kilometres an hour over the Lions Gate Bridge has been handed a $483 ticket for a similar incident that happened in the same location earlier last year.

Yihao Wang did not show up to North Vancouver traffic court on Thursday to dispute a ticket for excessive speeding, so the presiding justice deemed him guilty of the ticketed offence.

According to court documents, Wang was clocked by a West Vancouver police officer driving 126 km/h over the Lions Gate Bridge in his Mercedes CLS66 just before 1:30 a.m. on April 8, 2017.

Wang, who lives in the British Properties, still faces a charge of excessive speeding for the incident that happened in the early hours of July 4, when the same police officer caught him making another allegedly high-speed run across the Lions Gate – this time in a Ferrari going over 200 km/h.

Shortly after the incident, the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles extended the impound time of the white 2015 Ferrari 458 to 60 days from the initial seven-day impound.

The superintendent also slapped a 16-month driving ban on Wang.

Wang is disputing the ticket and a one-day trial has been set for April on that case.
