Officers from the force’s roads policing unit revealed the driver of an Alfa Romeo was recorded doing 102mph on the road.

They added that he had held a licence for less than two years and so is so likely to have it revoked.

He could not then drive again until taking a re-test.

Police added the driver claimed he was safe to drive at that speed, as he ‘does track days’, on racetrack circuits.
