Six motorists accused of travelling at 100mph or more on the A14 have had their cases come before Ipswich magistrates.
Two of the six allegedly drove at 110mph, the court heard during the hearings which all took place on the same day.
Samuel Rose, of Bruff Road, Ipswich, lost his licence after pleading guilty to travelling at 110mph in a P-registration Volkswagen Golf at 7.15pm on January 11.
At the time the 27-year-old was driving on the dual carriageway near the Wherstead turn-off.
Rose was banned from driving for 28 days and fined £200. He was also ordered to pay £85 costs and £20 to the victims’ fund.
Anthony Lener, of Northwood, Middlesex was also due before the court accused of speeding at 110mph at Newmarket on the same day as Rose.
However, his case was adjourned until July 10 for the 50-year-old to attend West Suffolk Magistrates Court in Bury St Edmunds to enter a plea.
Lener was said to have committed the offence just before 1pm while driving a Lexus GS300.
Roger Moise, of west London, also had his case adjourned until July 10 before Bury St Edmunds magistrates so a disqualification from driving could be considered.

The offence occurred at Beyton.
Gordon Selvage, of Gardener’s Road, Gibraltar, pleaded guilty by post to driving at 102mph at just after 6.10pm on November 23.

A £500 deposit was taken from him at the roadside at the time of the offence.
