Dramatic footage shows the moment a reckless groom-to-be sped along the M20 at Harrietsham at 142mph with a terrified six-year-old child next to him.
Speedster Mert Tanay was in such a hurry, he didn't see he had whizzed past an unmarked police car chasing another speeding vehicle.
And when the 26-year-old was eventually stopped by officers he claimed he was driving his BMW 323 coupe because he was thinking about his forthcoming marriage.

Tanay, 26, had weaved in and out of traffic without indicating before he was pulled over ten miles later on the coastbound carriageway near Harrietsham on September 28.
Canterbury Crown Court heard that at one point his vehicle was clocked at 141.6mph and when pulled over the officer discovered a visibly shaken six-year-old in the passenger seat.
Prosecutor Alex Rooke said: "He was driving so fast as to be considered dangerous, well in excess of 100 miles per hour.
"According to the officer his speed was excessive on what was a crowded motorway.

"He showed little regard for the welfare of his passenger and other road users for a prolonged spell of driving."
The officer said Tanay, of Heartford Road in Enfield, refused to slow down even when the child asked him.

Defending Paul Hogben said: "The defendant was stopped roadside, summonsed and entered a guilty plea at the preliminary hearing.
"He accepts his course of driving as dangerous and understands that he should have known better.
"Thankfully there was no accident, injuries or damage but he is a man with a full-time job and is due to be married at the end of this month.
"He has been disqualified from driving impacting on his everyday life and has certainly learned his lesson."
Tanay claimed he had been speeding because he was in a hurry to leave the motorway due to a urological complaint.
Judge Nigel van der Bijl disqualified Tanay from driving for three years and sentenced him to 50 hours unpaid work.
He must also pass an extended driving test to regain his licence and pay £100 in prosecution costs and a £60 victim surcharge.
After sentencing, Sergeant Chris Wade said: "The speed and manner of Mert Tanay’s driving in this case showed a complete disregard for the safety of other road users, not to mention that of his young passenger who looked very shaken by his experience.
"Tanay’s actions on what is a busy motorway fell far below what would be expected of a competent and careful driver."
