Ford Mustang, Focus RS, and BAC Mono Tapped for Police Duty During Isle of Man TT Races
There's even an electric bike from Zero Motorcycles.
The Isle of Man Constabulary has brought on a handful of performance vehicles for police duty to help keep everything civilized during some of the most intense motorcycle racing in the world: the Isle of Man TT, which is happening this week.
The Policing Unit of the Isle of Man Constabulary has added a new Ford Mustang GT, a Focus RS, a BAC Mono, and an electric bike from Zero Motorcycles to its fleet. Usually, the Policing Unit uses cars like its BMW X5s and 5 Series models to keep the public civil, but for the big competition, it has grabbed some equipment that better aligns with the grueling racing that the department will be working alongside over the next week.
“It’s a remarkable vehicle, and clearly will be of huge interest to bikers and car drivers alike," said Greaves. "We are here to promote safe use of the road, and it’s amazing how many people want to talk to you when this is your transport.”
The Isle of Man TT races started on Sunday, June 4th; events continue until Friday, June 9th.
