    Default How fast????

    A motorist has pleaded guilty to driving at 172mph on a rural A-road, making him the fastest speeder ever caught in Britain.
    (Advertisement)

    Tim Brady, 33, was caught in a random speed check on the A420 near Abingdon, Oxfordshire, driving a £98,000 3.6-litre Porsche 911 Turbo in January this year.

    The current highest speed to result in a conviction is 156mph.

    In a short appearance at Oxford Crown Court, Brady pleaded guilty to one count of dangerous driving.

    His plea of not guilty to one count of aggravated vehicle-taking was accepted by the Crown Prosecution Service and he will be sentenced next month.

    He must have come off a roundaout doing 105mph!

    A420 is a crappy road. Normally full of Tesco artics, how he managed 170 odd, Porsche or not, is beyond me.
