Police are seeking to identify an erratic and dangerous driver that evaded police in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Detective Senior Constable Lee Stewart, of the Warrnambool police crime investigation unit, said a blue Holden station wagon was observed driving east on Raglan Parade at fast speed about 12.30am.
He said the vehicle failed to stop on police request and accelerated away.
The offending vehicle stopped near the intersection of Gateway Road and Raglan Parade and conducted a burnout before continuing east.
Then at 5.30am, the vehicle was observed driving erratically on Mahoneys Road.
Detective Senior Constable Lee Stewart said the vehicle was again seen driving dangerously some four-and-a-half hours later in Bushfield and Grassmere.
He said a silver coloured sedan was also observed in the area at that time.
Charges relating to motorists fleeing police are complex and can range from failing to stop - where people travelling at the speed limit do not stop when police lights are turned on - to the aggravated offence of intentionally exposing an emergency worker to risk by driving.
Detective Senior Constable Stewart urged anyone with information to contact the Warrnambool police station or Crime Stoppers.
