Driving home from golf this evening along the A38, I spotted a Ford KA (old one and rather battered), joining from the slip road very quickly.
He tailgated the Audi A4 in front of me (my how the tables have turned) and undertook him with ease!! This was clearly a modified car because I was doing 71 lol and the Audi must have been doing about the same. The KA got back into the overtaking lane and tailgated a huge artic lorry FFS! He was so close that the lorry driver would not have seen him.
Later, the KA had pulled back in and dropped speed but I was a bit wary when overtaking. No problem though... at first!
I had driven on quite some way when he appeared and was about 4" off my bumper flashing his lights for me to move over. Once the sloth like transit van in front had moved over (approx 55 mph). I very steadily overtook the van in 5th gear and waited for the inevitable.
The KA dived into the inside lane to charge past me, so I could not resist flooring it in 5th. The result was a bit like when the Starship Enterprise enters warp speed and disappears from the screen lol. The KA became a speck in my mirror at 71mph naturally.
I backed off and exited the A38 down the slip road and into a very sharp left turn. The ST with ESP off loves this turn. The KA had appeared again and was right on my bumper at the turn. I flung the ST into the turn as I always do and could feel the car gripping and the seat bolsters holding me in.
The KA took the corner at the same speed with awful results. He was splatted to the drivers door window and the car went onto the wrong side of the road and nearly up the grass bank as well as facing the opposite verge. Yes this was amusing to see but just think if something had been coming. I cannot believe he wanted to take the corner at that speed in a car which is not made for it.
I was now in a 30 zone with housing and people walking the streets with one car in front of me when he appeared again. He tried to overtake about 50 yards from a mini roundabout!!! In a built up area!!
He then went a different direction thank god. It's all very well me having a bit of fun without being dangerous myself but rest assured that if I see that guy on the roads again, I would rather pull over and walk. UNBELIEVEABLE
