A Hamilton man caught speeding at twice the speed limit has since sold his car after accepting it was "too fast" for him.

A speed camera caught Tamahere man Matthew Michael Holmes, 24, mechanic, travelling at 158km at 1.34am on July 12.

Through his counsel Rob Quin in the Hamilton District Court this morning, Holmes said he'd only recently bought the Nissan Laurel and accepted that it was too fast for him so he'd sold it.

Meanwhile builder Corey Mitchell Davis, 22, was clocked doing 103km on Brymer Rd, Nawton on April  15.

Community Magistrate Kathryn Wilson convicted the pair, separately, on a charge of driving a vehicle on a road exceeding the applicable speed limit before fining them $630.

Speeding fines increase progressively from $30 for speeds less than 10 km over the limit, to a maximum fine of $630 for speeds up to 50km over the limit.
