Those who pay attention to the offbeat but increasingly mainstream world of cross country motoring records are well aware of the accomplishments of our friend Alex Roy and his motley crew of automotive miscreants known as Team Polizei. They may also be aware that Herr Roy swears that he has sworn off any further pursuits of long distance infamy.
Herr Roy has been alternately praised and criticized for his shameless self promotion over the past few years, but more recently that promotion has taken somewhat of a different tack. It seems now that Roy is intent on the world domination of the Team Polizei brand. But to what end? The clues are substantial, yet Roy isn’t talking. Well, not about the end goal.
Is there an end goal, or has the goal already been accomplished?
Exhibit #1: The release of Interceptor 144R, a race prepared yet street legal Euro spec M5 in Team Polizei livery.
Exhibit #2 sort of: 144H, an as yet unrevealed BMW powered pursuit vehicle.
Exhibit #3: Polizia Maritimo Veloce, Team Polizei Master Pilot Michael Ross has taken to the water
Exhibit #4: Polizia 144 Aereo Veloce, once again we see Michael Ross with some wicked high speed machinery. This time of the whirlybird variety!
So the grand question seems to be: What the hell are Team Polizei up to? Is Roy ramping up for the largest sale of orange raincoats the world has ever seen? Is there an around the globe record waiting to be set?
Has a new world record attempt already taken place?
Come now Herr Roy, inquiring minds want to know!
