THE driver of a Ferrari allegedly clocked at 233kph on the Hume Freeway in February will contest a charge of dangerous driving because he believed the vehicle could safely drive at that speed.

Wangaratta lawyer Nancy Battiato, representing the accused NSW man Carlo Hallacq, said her client would plead guilty to the speeding charge but not to the dangerous driving charge or witness claims that he was tail-gating other vehicles.
