Porsche, motorbikes in 224kmh race

The drivers of a Porsche and two motorcycles have had their vehicles confiscated after reaching speeds of more than 220km/h in an alleged road race.

Police say the three men were racing along a 100km/h zone of the Pacific Highway on the far north NSW coast on Saturday about  10.40am (AEST).

Officers stopped on the highway at Tyagarah, north of Byron Bay, allegedly observed the motorcycles overtake the Porsche in a road race.

The danger heightened when they overtook three other vehicles and reached a top speed of 224km/h before being pulled over.

The 31-year-old driver of the Porsche and the two motorcycle riders, aged 25 and 28, were charged them with dangerous driving, street racing, and exceeding the speed limit by more than 45km/h.
 
They are scheduled to appear in Byron Bay Court on January 23.

All three men had their licences suspended and their vehicles confiscated.
