    ****head in clio

    after dropping girlfriend off at college this morning i pulled out of car park and this clio 197 comes up behind me and is nearly touching bumper.i put my foot down and then he catches back up.coming off roundabout i put my foot down in 2nd and 3rd and this clio could only just keep up.anyways gets to traffic light and its 2 lanes and he flys past with engine screaming its tits off.away he goes and im behind him and he slightly pulls away.for a car with nearly twice the power i expected it to piss all over my 1.6 astra.i was shocked

    So you admit to racing this guy on a public highway?

    Well done!

    But your more than happy to keep up with some "tool" in a Clio with 2 kids in your car though.

    Oh, and re-read my post, I didn't say you were racing, just saying you admit to racing then? Simple question.

    Your first fail was speeding up. The right thing to do is drop to 10mph
