    Default Corsa almost does a Duncan....

    Just popped out to PC world for some kit, The road out of here is a county road and fun to drive. A Porsche Boxster Tootled past the house followed by a young girl in a Corsa. I pull out and head off behind them doing 30 (the limit by our house) a little way back .

    They get to the open road and go round a bend. I'm a little way back as I said and when I go round to my surprise they have gone. I open up the throttle (remember this road is fun) and a few turns later catch them doing about 50 - 60. To my amazement the corsa is tail gating the Porsche as if racing.

    We round a noturious blind bend. The Porsche drops anchor as he realises theres a cyclist halfway round. Unfortunately f reg Corsas don't stop as well as Boxsters! She dropped anchor causing the car to fishtail big time. Duncan imediately entered my mind. She came to within an inch of modding both cars! I was a little further back and could see this turning nasty.

    Once past the cyclist the porsche opened up and amazingly she tried, and did a pretty good job of keeping up although he made it clear who was the boss. She turned off shortly after and I had a little fun. He obviously wanted to floor it but a. his wife was in the car and b. with the twists in the road I had a half decent chance of staying with him....

    I'm sure theres a moral here but Porsche Verses Corsa....almost a draw!

    Oi!! Cheeky beggar! I wasn't racing/tailgating - just an unfortunate set of circumstances.

    I was drawing similarities on the situation...Coming round a bend and having to drop anchor to avoid a Porsche...


    Something she did a bit better than you did D.

    lol - well I had a slight disadvantage. I came round the corner to find a stationery Porsche - methinks even a Porsche couldn't have stopped in time.
