    Default m6 south car chase 08/11/09

    making my way home tonight from Blackburn along the m65 motorway at about 5.10pm with the usual annoying Sunday middle lane hogs - I might have gone a fraction over the limit to get past a few before it drops to 2 lanes.

    Anyway next thing I see a marked traffic car on the hard shoulder messing with something which I thought was some kind of strapping debris at the back of his car. I eased off and past him at XX mph and thought no more about it.

    A minute later I see a helicopter beside the motorway using a night sun and I thought cool some kind of chase. Next thing as the motorway exit to Preston / M6 is approaching I dropped in behind a Fiat Punto as we were both going to come off. I see a set of blue lights in my rear view rapidly gaining on me and I had a guilty thought re my previous speeds...

    As he was nearing me I could hear his siren then I see a second set of blues on the horizon. I was just 100 yrd or so behind the Fiat and we were both indicating to come off when a black focus (I think) driving with no lights cut between us at about 100 mph, he was so close I felt the shockwave of him passing and as I hadn't seen him at all it gave me a bit of a shock. He cut past the Fiat and exited at speed towards the roundabout.

    I moved to the shoulder and let both cops have a clear passage (Fiat guy didnt budge) and they both sped after the Focus. He turned south bound onto the m6 and when I joined it the traffic was heavy enough to keep everyone below 80 so no chance of catching up.

    I didnt see them again but when i got to the Ashton in Makerfield exit the copter was there again using the night sun just off the motorway.

    Anyone knows any more info or saw the chase please post !

    Sounds like something out of a film! Have seen it myself though, can't remember what car it was, but it was going stupidly fast, didn't catch the make like, was coming up to me at rediculous speeds in a 30, went skidding round a corner, and I was like jesus christ, next thing an unmarked veccy in star silver with blue lights built came speeding past and did the same!

    Looking at the reviews of youtube, I cant remember if it was 5th gear or topgear, I think I'd have the Focus ST3 TBH.
