Two men who led police on a high-speed chase in a stolen car last week were denied bail in Lismore local court yesterday.

Reports say one of the men filmed the chase, including the speedometer of the car showing speeds of up to 200km/h, on his mobile phone.

The driver, Jarram Power, 20, of Brisbane, may have been ‘inspired’ by a friend reportedly involved in last Monday’s carjacking at Sydney Airport.

His passenger, Benjamin Farnell, 22, of Geebung, Queensland, was the alleged filmmaker.

Police allege the men had a range of drugs and a loaded gun in the car.

Both men were refused bail and the court was told that Farnell was wanted in Queensland for breaching bail conditions.
