A sports car driver is facing a court date after being caught doing 100mph on the A47 Acle Straight.
Police said the vehicle had been stopped on Wednesday evening after being followed by a patrol car that had monitored its speed.
The driver was clocked doing excessive speed and has been reported. The suspected speed means they face an automatic court date.
It comes after Norfolk Police said it had seen an increase in drivers hitting the 100mph mark on roads during the coronavirus lockdown.
Since the start of lockdown in March, 1.1% of vehicles were caught speeding at more than 100mph, double the same period last year.
