Two men have been arrested in connection with a video which appears to show a car travelling up to 201mph in Sussex.

The footage, posted on social media, was captured on the M23 southbound between Gatwick and Crawley and is believed to have occurred at some point during the coronavirus lockdown.

Following enquiries, the vehicle identified as being involved – a black Audi RS6 – was located out of force and seized for further investigation.

Enquiries also led to the arrest of two suspects.

A 38-year-old man from Crawley, arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, has been released under investigation, pending further enquiries.

A 38-year-old man from Horsham, arrested on suspicion of aggravated vehicle taking and dangerous driving, has been released on conditional bail until 9 July, pending further enquiries.

Chief Inspector Michael Hodder, of the Surrey and Sussex Roads Policing Unit, said: “As part of this complex investigation, we have pursued a number of lines of enquiry which has led to the arrest of two suspects.

“However, our enquiries are ongoing and we are still urging anyone with any information about the incident to report it online or call 101, quoting Operation Checkmate.”

You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or report it online. 

Chief Insp Hodder added: “Speeding is one of the four most common causes of fatal and serious injury collisions, and we will not tolerate these offences on our roads.

“While the vast majority of motorists stay within the speed limits, there is a small minority who put themselves and others at risk. There is no excuse for speeding at any time, and we will actively investigate any offences committed.”

You can report incidents of dangerous or antisocial driving via Operation Crackdown.
