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.

  1. What type of ticket do you get when you break the speed in that way its bad enough that they give people tickets for going 5 MPH faster than the speed limit. I surprised that they didn’t give a attempted murder charge for reckless driving with a vehicle

  2. The Guardia should have 1) confiscated his car and 2) put this idiot in JAIL charged with Reckless Endangerment and 3) prohibited him from driving in Spain for 5 years.
    He’s a danger to the Public and proves the old saying, “the most DANGEROUS part of any car, is the NUT behind the steering wheel.
