Manhunt for Speedster Who Clocked 322km/h on R21, Joburg

R21 JoburgEkurhuleni Metro Police Department (EMPD) is still searching for a driver who was captured on camera driving at over 300km/h on the R21 road in Johannesburg.

The speedster was recorded by a passenger inside the car clocking a maximum of 322km/h, before proceeding to post the clip on social media. It appeared he was racing a motorcycle.

Watch the clip.

An occupant in the vehicle is heard instructing the driver in Afrikaans to allow the motorbike to pass them, then catch up.

“Laat hom gaan, laat hom gaan, dan gaan haal jy hom” (Let him go, let him go, then go after him), the man says to the driver.

EMPD spokesperson Wilfred Kgasago said the car registration had not been identified, urging the public to come forward with information that may lead to an arrest.

“We hope that the public would come forward with something concrete to locate the driver or the registered owner,” Kgasago said.

He added that the police are also using other ways to track down the driver, but could not reveal to the public.
