Not flashed but made eye contact (yes, traffic is that bad - fortunately its them that are nearly stationary) and neither driver looks like they are likely to "get it"; I wonder if they even recognise a 916?

On Tuesday around 12:30 as I approached Ledbury on A417 a bright green 916 Spider (not sure I have ever seen that colour before) lady driver - no return wave. Later on Tuesday (around 5:30) A49 southbound just south of Shrewsbury a red P2 GTV (TS I think) - again no return wave - driver was looking towards passenger so may not even have seen me.

Nice looking red N plate Spider, A66 near Thornaby. I was on my way to collect mine from my Grans garage in Guisborough for todays journey to the Alps. Set of at 4pm from Ferrybridge services, A1. Look out for the grey GTV and red Spider in convoy.
