I just finished doing my 625 mile run-in and not looking for a race (just getting back from my parents, delivered a birthday card from myself and David Coultard, she is a fan of his, his card got pride of place) when an old man in a BMW 330ci decides to hang on my bumper. We get to a set of traffic lights leading onto the A45 and on green he floors it, he beats me away from the lights as I am of two minds as to whether I want a race or not. He beats me onto the dual carridgeway but I manage to catch him up and over take him, just as I do that a CTR joins the fun and also takes the 530Ci and stays with me until I turn off. Pretty good fun a most excellent little car (172 not CTR thought it was a people carrier at first).
Plus I saw my first 172 since owning mine, a black one on the A43 heading towards Oxford at about 3.30pm.
A very good day all round. Off to London tomorrow to do some shopping with the girlfriend so any more race action will have to wait.
