Brit police nab country's fastest speeder ever

When Tim Brady punched the accelerator in the Porsche 911 Turbo he was piloting down a rural road in Oxfordshire earlier this year, he could never have imagined that the action would become a moment of infamy. After all, he had to feel pretty confident that no police were on speed patrol where he was, else he wouldn't have wound the car out to 172 MPH. Unfortunately for him, the fuzz was there, and yesterday, Mr. Brady officially became the fastest speeder ever caught in Great Britain when he pled guilty to charges of dangerous driving. His 172 MPH shatters the former high mark of 156 MPH set by a BMW M3 driver in Scotland. That guy went to jail for five months, which doesn't bode well for Mr. Clark.
