Neighbors said the drivers were from Qatar and since they moved into area a few months ago, they had seen several sports cars on their driveways.
The people currently living at the 8,895 sqft home in Beverly Hills, which rents for $45,000 a month, where the cars pulled up on Saturday, declined to speak to reporters yesterday. Video journalist Jacob Rogers said that a man - thought to be the driver - confronted him when he captured the incident on video.
'He told me verbatim, 'I could have you killed and get away with it,' Rogers said.
'I told him, 'the press is allowed to be here on the sidewalk on a public street.' He said, 'F*** America' and threw a cigarette at me.'
Footage of the race, which began on North Walden Drive, has now been viewed hundreds of thousands of times on You Tube.
The Beverly Hills Police Department said that the United States State Department is involved now in the investigation into his alleged diplomatic status and the legality of the vehicles driven on the road.
The department told Dailymail.com they were looking into the 'unsafe and reckless driving of high performance exotic vehicles' but said that as officers did not observe the violations personally, they could not make a citation or arrest at the time.
------Good Job representing Qatar douche bag!! Another example of too much money leading to an a-hole attitude, how embarrassing.
