Banned motorist: “I’m still going to drive, catch me if you can”

A driver caught speeding at 165mph on a motorway told a court: “I’m still going to drive – catch me if you can”, after he was given a three-year road ban.

Shiad Mahmoon, 24, from Oldham, was captured on camera speeding down the M57 in Merseyside in an Audi R8 Spyder supercar.

The 24-year-old matched the speed that a passenger jet takes off.

Liverpool magistrates’ court was told that the speed was the fastest ever recorded by police in Merseyside.
