    British speeder is clocked at 172 mph

    LONDON - The fastest driver ever convicted of speeding in Britain was jailed for 10 weeks Monday after he was clocked at 172 mph in his company's Porsche.

    Tim Brady, 33, was caught on Jan. 27 driving the 98,000 pound ($198,000) Porsche 911 Turbo which he took without permission from his employer, luxury car rental firm HelpHire PLC.

    The previous record — 156 miles per hour — was set by car dealer Jason McAllister in 2003.

    Brady had nagged his boss take the Porsche out the day before but was repeatedly told no, the court heard. He returned the next day and took the car anyway.

    Judge David Morton called the act "criminally self-indulgent."

    "(You were) utterly thoughtless of the danger you might be creating for the innocent," he told Brady.

    Brady, who admitted dangerous driving at a hearing last month, was banned from driving for three years and will have to take a new driving test before taking to the road again.

    He quit his job a day after he was caught near Kingston Bagpuize, about 60 miles west of London.
