    Is this now common place that drivers are going to be racing against me even though im driving 40 in a 40? This guy in a merc almost killed himself on a roundabout to prove his cars valor, then slowed down and tried again and sped off like a lunatic (with his 8 year old boy in the passanger seat). Im not going to rise to this type of invitation but it seems in the UK they probably have no clue what my kitty is running!

    Most of the cars stare, smile and some even thumbs up or wave, hopefully not too many going to be pushing me to engage as I chose life/license over showing off.

    Glad you got it home all in one piece. Most people smile or give you a thumbs up. What I can tell you is you will get a lot of attention everywhere you go. Never had anyone try and race me. Well maybe once but a one litre Corsa does not count. Just taking a friend out for a spin. Chap in the Corsa was giving it the beans off a roundabout. We just blew past him. What you will find is that you don't have to pick off two cars at a time. You can do eight in the time it takes most cars to do two. Happy days, enjoy :)

    Happens on occasion and I'm not one to play the game on the street. If, however, they are a decent human about it and we chat - track arrangements can be made.
