It's one way of beating Perth's increasingly notorious congestion.
V8 Supercar superstar Craig Lowndes, along with local Olympic javelin star Kim Mickle, have hopped into a Red Bull Racing Holden Commodore and blasted through the CBD ahead of this weekend's Championship round.
Perth drivers are increasingly faced with growing queues of traffic as the roadworks transforming the WA capital continue to pile-up.
But Lowndes had no such worries, with two police outriders carving him a route down St George's Terrace on Wednesday, leaving pedestrians, shoppers and fellow motorists wide-eyed at the pace and power of his 888 car.
In a move even more likely to leave Perth motorists agog, Lowndes was then due to hand out free fuel for 30 minutes at a nearby petrol station.
