Two men have had their cars confiscated after allegedly driving at more than 200km/h last month.

A 40-year-old Dudley Park man was captured on a speed camera allegedly travelling at 226km/h in a 90km/h zone.

The offence took place on Mandjoogoordup Drive in Lakelands on June 22.

The man’s Holden Commodore was later impounded for 28 days. He has been charged with reckless driving and is due to appear in Mandurah Magistrate’s Court tomorrow.

A 37-year-old Mandurah woman has also been charged over the incident after she allegedly claimed to be the driver, despite the photo showed a man driving the car.

She is due in court next week.

A 26-year-old man has been charged with reckless driving after vision from the police helicopter allowed police to determine the speed of his vehicle while travelling on Kwinana Freeway, near Manning, on June 5.

It will be alleged at one point the vehicle was travelling at 205km/h in a 100km/h zone.

The man’s vehicle was impounded for 28 days. He is due in Perth Magistrate’s Court on August 28.

Another three people, who police say were members of a car club, used a vehicle-mounted camera to film alleged drag races along Leach Highway.

Fremantle police intercepted the three vehicles near the corner of Leach highway and Wheyland Street late on June 27 Street.

The officers seized a memory card from the camera and allowed the drivers to leave, pending further investigation.

All three drivers were issued surrender notices for their vehicles, including two Toyota 86s and a Subaru BRZ.

A 23-year-old woman from Waikiki, a 31-year-old man from Ferndale and a 27-year-old man from Applecross will face court at a later date.
