A BRITISH driver is thought to have broken the Andalucian speeding record.
Alan McGregor Heron, originally from Glasgow, was clocked driving at 271km/h on the A-92A between Antequera and Baza.
The 56-year-old businessman, who lives in Marbella, was fined 3,600 euros and had his licence seized.
Heron was driving a Ferrari California (see picture) on temporary registration plates.
According to a spokesman for the Guardia Civil it is “completely unheard of” to be caught driving at this speed and rare to go much faster than 200km/h.
A patrol car had intercepted him as he approached Baza, north East of Granada.
He is not the only Briton to be in the news for bad driving. Last week a British pensioner on a mobility scooter took a wrong turn and ended up driving along a motorway. In other driving news a British man, 30, died after his van left the road and plunged down a steep cliff near Velez Malaga.
It was better news in Jerez, with only one motorbike death over the Jerez Grand Prix weekend.
While a further four bikers were injured in accidents, only one actually died in a head on crash near Arcos de la Frontera.
