A speeding driver has been ordered to pay fines and costs of £11,000 after challenging his ticket.
David Pickup, 45, was photographed in April 2014 doing 101mph in his Audi R8 on the A55 at Lloc in Flintshire.
Flintshire Magistrates’ Court heard a police speed camera caught him and he allegedly asked officers “Can we call it 98?”.
Pickup, from Wilmslow, Cheshire, has a holiday home in Abersoch, Gwynedd, and was convicted of speeding.
He denied breaking the 70mph speed limit and said that a number of people from Cheshire had second homes in Abersoch, which he called a millionaire’s paradise.
The defence questioned the accuracy of the in-car police speed camera so the prosecution hired an expert who rented an airfield and an Audi R8 to carry out tests, the results of which were presented to the court.
Pickup was fined £675, given six points and ordered to pay the full prosecution costs which included the testing of £10,384.
