165kph? In my state his car would have been impounded on the spot.
I wonder if the TAC may now be having second thoughts? Behind closed doors I am certain they must be.

Shane Warne charged with speeding and faces losing his licence
January 06, 2013 12:00AM
VICTORIA'S road safety body has backed Shane Warne after he was charged with doing 165km/h while holidaying in Scotland.
Last month the spin king was in the TAC's Homesafely road campaign, representing his Twenty20 cricket side the Melbourne Stars.
He now faces the possibility of losing his licence after allegedly driving his Jaguar XFR V8 53km/h over the speed limit on September 17.
Court documents said: "On 17 September 2012, on the A74 Glasgow to Carlisle northbound carriageway ... you Shane Keith Warne did drive a motor vehicle at a speed which exceeded the 70mph maximum at a speed of 103mph, contrary to the motorways traffic speed limit regulations 1974," Scotland's Herald reported.
It is not known if his fiance, Liz Hurley, was by his side.
In a statement the TAC said that regarding team players' driving: "Everyone should be a road safety ambassador and show respect for all road users."
A spokeswoman said Warne's speeding charge would not affect the partnership because it was with the Stars and the Renegades.
Last year Warne clashed with a cyclist in a road rage spat that prompted a police report. He called for cyclists to have compulsory registration plates so they were accountable if they flouted road rules.
State Opposition road safety spokesman Luke Donnellan said "it raises questions about why the Baillieu Government is more concerned about media stunts than producing a road safety strategy".
Warne did not return calls.
