A late-night pursuit in Timaru has ended with a motorcyclist paying the price for excessive speed and evading police.

A Timaru man, 31, was caught travelling at 170kmh between Timaru and Pareora at 1am on Monday.

Police attempted to pull him over, but he continued along Beaconsfield Rd to Rockdale and Coonoor Rds before taking any notice of the flashing lights.

He was charged with driving in a dangerous manner and failing to stop. His licence was suspended for 28 days.
