Also, if the thing fails, can u guarantee than u can drive to the stealer straight away (e.g. u have a car full of ppl to an important meeting)? Or even if it's open at all?
If you really think you have a significant chance of not keeping your speed in check and
think the police will actually come across your path on the way to the dealer, then you should call for a tow truck to take the car to the dealer. This would be free in the US, not sure about in HK.
