Aaaahh, these are the days,
Earlier this evening on my way home along the M5 a red Honda Civic Type R (New Shape) decided to over take me and a lorry and then stay in the inside lane. I wouldn't have minded but I was indicating out around the lorry as well, and the Type R just couldn't wait so overtook us both. Hmm, engage naughty boy mode,
I continued indicating, checked my mirrors and slammed my right foot as hard as possible on the gas pedal dropping the XJS into 2nd gear and roaring out around past the Lorry,
Next up: That Type R!!!
He was pretty quick, and had covered quite a bit of ground by the time I too was in the inside lane, but sure enough, as long as you keep your foot planted, that Jag bloody flies!!!
I had caught up with him in no time causing him to indicate back into the middle lane and let me roar by, meanwhile he's still giving it beans. But his attempts against me were sadly to no avail.
She may be old, she may not be immaculate, she may have 124,000 miles on her, but boy can that old cat fly!!!
I do try not to give it the old kickdown very often, as she is getting on a bit, but I reckon it's good for her to let that straight six roar every now and again,
