A teenager speeding through a German town in a go-kart with seven squad cars in hot pursuit managed to give the frustrated officers the slip, police said on Friday.

After leading the convoy on a…3-mile… chase through the winding streets of Moenchengladbach, the 18-year-old driver spotted a private garage with an open door, where he decided to lie low, police said.

“We were chasing him across town, but the squad cars couldn’t keep up because the go-kart was able to take the corners faster and he was able to get away,” police spokesman Willy Thevissen said.

However, police later discovered his hiding place. He was questioned and charged with driving without a licence and driving a go-kart on a public street, which is not permitted in Germany.
