Brian Barton, 54, appeared at Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 11 September 2013, to be sentenced for speeding.

The appearance comes after Barton was caught travelling at 135mph, almost twice the legal limit, on his Kawasaki motorcycle on the A1, near , on Saturday 6 July 2013.

Barton was banned from driving for 56 days and fined a total of £377.

Inspector Paul Cording, of North Yorkshire ’s Roads Policing Group, said:

This sentence is a clear demonstration of the determination of all those in the criminal justice system to keep the roads in North Yorkshire as safe as possible.

Barton’s speed was completely unacceptable and utterly reckless. It is simply not something we will tolerate.

He not only put his own life at risk, Barton endangered the safety of other road users.

Anyone caught using the roads of North Yorkshire as a racetrack should expect to face the same punishment when they are caught.
