A man and woman have been charged over an alleged street race at Belford.
Around 11:30pm Tuesday, police were patrolling the New England Highway when they saw a red Subaru WRX and a silver Ford Falcon heading south at speed.
The officers activated their warning lights as the vehicle continued racing southbound side-by-side, allegedly hitting speeds of over 170km/h per hour in a 110km/h zone.
The cars kept driving for about a kilometre before stopping and speaking with police.
A 23-year-old woman allegedly behind the wheel of the Subaru and a 55-year-old man allegedly driving the Ford were both issued court attendance notices for organising or promoting a race between vehicles.
The pair will face court on November 25.
