► Track day hero joins the force
► Donated by young person's charity for two years
► Will be used to educate about road safety
Norfolk Constabulary police officers will be clambering over each other to get the keys to its latest fleet addition: a Porsche Cayman GT4.
The stripped-out, track-ready supercar destroyer has been donated to the force for two years by Lind Trust, a charity that supports the young people of Norwich and Norfolk.
The main reason for the GT4’s donation to the fleet is to engage more with the local populace – particularly young drivers - about road safety. The hope is that the eye-catching car will draw the attention of motorists, and 'be at the forefront of police engagement and education.'
Simon Bailey, chief constable of Norfolk Constabulary, said: 'I’m confident that the use of the Porsche will help break down barriers and enable officers to speak with young drivers and provide road safety advice.
'The GT4 will certainly attract a lot of attention – but that’s the whole idea. We hope the car will act as a conversation starter.'
Norfolk Constabulary will wheel out the GT4 at events like the Royal Norfolk Show at the end of June and will be 'taken to areas where car enthusiasts are known to gather' – presumably Tesco car parks at three in the morning.
We said the GT4 was 'a remarkable drive, even by Porsche standards' back in 2015. Check out our review here
