Biker clocked at 383mph

10.51 | 6 November 2009 |

An Italian motorcyclist is appealing after he lost his licence when safety cameras clocked him at an impossible 383 mph.

Paolo Turina claims the camera was clearly so defective the charge should never have been brought.

He said: "If I could go that fast I’d enter my bike in the MotoGP world championships. Valentino Rossi would not stand a chance. What did they think they were clocking – a jet fighter?

"If the court rules the fine will stand then I’m going to send it to the Guinness Book of Records – after all if the court says its true then I should get the credit for this remarkable feat."

Police claim the camera was working perfectly but said they suspected staff botched the charge paperwork.
