The Mini was clocked travelling at 104mph

“The Mini in question was recorded travelling at 104mph. The Mini Challenge and Scottish Mini Cooper Cup are track events, the maximum speed limit for any vehicle on a motorway is 70mph, unless otherwise stated.

“The 24-year-old driver will be reported to the Procurator Fiscal for the offence and faces losing his licence, a hefty fine and many points on his licence. Travelling at this speed is unacceptable, selfish, and puts other people’s lives at risk.

"If you want to feel like a racing driver please book a track day.”
