Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher is appealing against a driving ban.
The Scotland international was caught on camera in his Range Rover driving at 77mph in a 50mph zone on the M42/M6 Toll at Curdworth, in Warwickshire, in January.
He was handed a six-month driving ban and £1,700 fine.
In addition the 25-year-old was ordered to pay £500 costs and £15 victim surcharge.
He had originally pleaded not guilty, but changed his plea to guilty in absence on the day he was due to stand trial.
The case was then adjourned because the bench was considering disqualifying Fletcher, but he did not turn up at court.
On 3 October 2012 Nuneaton Magistarates court will hear an application to suspend his driving disqualification pending an appeal at the Crown court.
Fletcher is one of several Sunderland players to have faced speeding charges over the past year.
Former loan striker Nicklas Bendtner was banned from driving for 56 days and fined £660 after being clocked driving at 103mph in his Porche.
In March, defender Phil Bardsley was given a fine and six points after being caught doing 72mph in at 50mph road on the A690 in West Rainton.
