Transport Secretary Says New Firm Will Design, Build And Operate Varsity Line
158 MPH Biker Banned
A motorcyclist caught travelling at the highest speed ever recorded in Cambridgeshire has been banned from driving.
The 23 year old, who Police haven't named, was clocked doing 158 miles an hour on the A1 back in April [pictured - right].
He was spotted racing another motorbike along the road.
Officers managed to stop the Honda motorcycle at Sawtry, where they discovered it had two defective tyres.
The rider, from Bedford, said he was on his way to visit his girlfriend in Peterborough at the time.
He has admitted dangerous driving, banned from driving for 15 months and must complete an extended driving test before being allowed back on the roads.
He must also carry out 150 hours of unpaid work.
PC Francis Crawford, who stopped the rider, said: "This was a very dangerous piece of riding and it is only through sheer luck that no-one was seriously injured or killed.
Riding at such speeds is unacceptable and puts other road users at risk."
South Cambs MP Heidi Allen wants to be Mayor of Cambridgeshire & Peterborough.
