    The M77 is a Mix of 70, 60 for about 2 miles then 50mph for the last four miles and throw in the "BIG!" drop from the Crookfur on-ramp to Barrhead road you have almost guaranteed speed exceeding conditions

    Few years back I took a friend to England to buy a Megane convertible.

    I was running a Vectra estate which used to have a 2.0 litre turbo diesel engine, but it died (before I bought it) so I replaced it with a 1.7 Isuzu turbo diesel engine (some minor conversions & Isuzu exhaust and rad pack).

    It was a great car and was happy cruising at 115mph. No more, but it sat right on the money at 115.

    Anyway, we had been "racing" each other all the way up from lower middle England with him giving me an hour head start

    So we are on the M74 and I pull out to pass a silver BMW 5 series diesel.

    It didn't look right. Two up, both with white shirts & ties, but no hanging jackets. I pass it looking and spotting the giveaways (strobes behind grille & inside rear lamps, two mirrors, extra kit on the dash at window level).

    I passed, pulled in and sat at 85mph, same as other traffic.

    So I try calling my mate to warn him (I was hands free and still am), but he was blabbing on the phone and had been for about an hour

    Anyway, I looked in the rear view and next thing I see is Scotty in the Megane passing the cops and me at warp 9
    Then I see the beemer stretch it's legs and tear after him like the cops arses were on fire

    I pass them around 5 miles further on and laughed so much I had to pull into the next services at Abington.

    I almost wet myself when he phoned up to complain

    He got caught at 149mph....well, that what they believed he was doing, but the cut him a break and gave him a £60 fine & 3 points.

    I don't see Scotty much these days as he is way up the chain of command sorting out failing hotels & pubs.

    Cracking guy, not a bad driver and jammy as hell

    Very lucky indeed.

    The sister-in-law got pulled doing 91mph not long ago and was told by the policeman that another 1mph more and she'd have lost her licence.

    ex pat scot stuck in preston

    you're lucky to have such posh unmarked police cars

    in preston they're using a CORSA

    saw it sat ....... 59 plate but couldn't get letters

    anyway this is really true but

    more seriously

    if you're ever in and around M6 preston

    take care at M6/M61/M65 interchange J29

    They love to sit on bridges there and take photo's

    also J28 northbound on entry slip they like to watch you go by

    also ANPR is rife around the area....

    and M65 as you go up between J3 &4 sit on bridge there

    and M61 on bridge before j8 and at J8

    beware

    they use unmarked silver volvo, blue bmw, green bmw, vec's too

    and they have the big m'way unit at J31 tickled trout turnoff

    so all in all not really worth zooming through middle lancs

    cheers
