A 21-year-old Mississauga man is facing racing charges after OPP pulled over an SUV doing more than double the speed limit on a country road near Guelph on Sunday afternoon. 

Wellington County OPP say an officer was monitoring traffic on Wellington Rd. 36 in Morriston, just south of Hwy. 401, when a black SUV sped by him at well over the posted 50 km/h speed limit at about 2:30 p.m. 

Police radar clocked the vehicle at just over 115 km/h. 

A Mississauga man is charged with racing a motor vehicle. He’s scheduled to appear in Guelph court on Nov. 17. 

His driver’s licence and the SUV were seized by police for seven days.
