Christopher Debono, 62, was filmed hurtling along the A43 bypass in Corby on 19 May.
Officers from Northamptonshire Police’s Safer Roads Team were monitoring rush-hour traffic when Debono passed their mobile enforcement van at 6.15pm.
He was clocked at 162mph – more than twice the legal speed limit and one of the fastest ever recorded by police.
Debono, of Windingbrook Lane, Northampton, admitted driving at a speed in excess of 70mph when he appeared before the courts.
He was banned from driving for six months and fined £1,000.
