Noise complaints led police to arrest local Formula Three racing driver Marchy Lee Ying-kin for refusing to take a breath test early yesterday. Residents called police complaining that a black car was creating a lot of noise in Shing Ping Street, Happy Valley, shortly before 1am. One said the vehicle was also creating a lot of smoke. When police and fire officers arrived to investigate, a black Ferrari was found parked in the street but no one was in it. Police said no burn marks were found on the road or smoke seen. But officers found Lee, 32, standing beside the Ferrari F430, worth about HK$3 million when it was bought in 2005. He was co-operative and told officers it was his car, according to a police spokesman. Lee was asked to take a breathalyser test, as information suggested he could have been driving the car and officers detected the smell of alcohol on him, police said. He refused to take the test and was taken to Happy Valley police station. A police spokeswoman said Mr Lee was released on bail of HK$6,000 and ordered to report to police in mid-August. Officers from Hong Kong Island traffic unit are handling the case. Lee is the first local driver to race in Formula Three, having taken part in the 1999 French F3 Championship series. He is the son of racing enthusiast Eddie Lee, a former Macau amateur driver. Marchy Lee became junior Hong Kong kart champion in 1990 when he was 14, and won the title again the following year. He spent 1998 and 1999 in France, where he trained and raced for the Formula Renault Campus team. He won the Formula BMW Asia series race in 2004.
