A P-plate motorcyclist is reportedly caught at a speed of 247 km / h in a 60 zone during a dramatic police hunt.
The 23-year-old man with a disqualified driver’s license reportedly carried a co-driver and had his rear license plate hidden when he caught the attention of police at Wiley Park, southwest Sydney on Saturday morning.
Officers were unable to stop the Suzuki GSX-R1000, and PolAir was used to track the driver who reportedly drove his rear wheel.
The motorcyclist eventually stopped at a house in Greenacre and tried to hide after dumping his bicycle in the front yard.
Police eventually arrested the 23-year-old and discovered that his driver’s license had been disqualified until 2023.
He was taken to Bankstown Police Station and was accused of not being stopped in the pursuit of the police, driving dangerously, driving recklessly / furiously or driving speed / way dangerous, driving during the disqualification period and obscuring the vehicle’s license plate.
Recordings made by PolAir show how the bicycle travels on highways and runs irregularly through streets.
Police and Emergency Minister David Elliott said that dangerous driving endangers everyone’s lives.

“I was incredulous when I heard that a perpetrator was clocked while doing more than 150mph in a 60 zone. This is absolutely crazy behavior at a time when our aid workers are focused on fighting the pandemic, ”he said.
“Only last week we saw the tragic loss of four officers in Victoria who were simply doing their job to protect the community.
“The Commissioner and I recently announced an additional 250 police officers across the country. These agents will uphold the law to protect society from individuals who believe that their dangerous driving style will not kill an innocent family. ‘
The motorcyclist was denied bail and will appear again in court on May 6.
