Pretoria - Police are investigating why the docket of a man accused of doing 243km/h on the N1 highway near Midrand was not availed to the Pretoria Magistrate's Court, causing the matter to be struck from the roll.

On Tuesday, the Pretoria News reported that David Hack, 55, appeared in court last week and was told his case would be struck because his docket was not available, for the second time. But Gauteng traffic police spokesperson Busaphi Nxumalo told the newspaper Hack was not off the hook yet.

"As soon as we have established what happened to the docket, the case will be reinstated and he will be issued with a notice to appear in court," said Nxumalo.

Hack and his son Adam made headlines when they were arrested for allegedly racing their Porsche GT3s in July.

They were arrested for speeding on the N1 to Pretoria and released on bail. They faced charges of reckless and negligent driving, with an alternative charge of exceeding the general speed limit of 120km/h.

The newspaper reported that Hack jun. would be notified whether he would be officially charged after his R1 500 admission of guilt fine was revoked.

"His docket is still with the Director of Public Prosecutions and we are waiting for a decision. No court date has yet been set," Nxumalo told the newspaper.

The 20-year-old was caught driving behind his father, travelling at 188km/h.

At the time of their arrest, Hack Jr allegedly told police he was an Olympic athlete.
