UK’s ‘worst speeder’ filmed himself at 192 mph

A man, believed to be Britain’s worst speeding offender, has been jailed for 28 months after filming himself driving at 192 miles per hour.

Police found mobile phone footage of Shaun Davis, from Northampton, driving several high performance cars when he was arrested on an unrelated matter.

One video showed him reach a speed of 192 mph (309 kmh) in a Nissan GTR.

The 42-year-old was jailed after being found guilty of four counts of dangerous driving.

Northampton Crown Court was told he had filmed his speeding on several occasions on Northamptonshire roads, including the A45, between 2012 and 2014.

Davis had denied all the charges.

Det Insp Greg Maides, of Northamptonshire Police, said officers found several videos on Davis’ mobile phone after he was arrested earlier this year.

The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) described Davis’ actions as “criminally dangerous”.

A Freedom of Information request by the IAM in February revealed Britain’s two worst speeders had been caught at 146 mph by speed cameras, both by Kent Police on the M25.
