Because Ill get flack let me explain. Straight dual carriage way with no hidden side roads/entrances, 60mph limit. About quarter of a mile ahead, road goes into single file as you enter a 40mph zone. Dry weather, excellent visibility.
To my right, a bright yellow Porsche 968 ClubSport thats been quite cocky for sometime. Im interested to see how hard he pulls away as the lights change. He rockets off and so do I. In fact, despite it sounding like his pistons are about to depart via his bonnet, he absolutely cannot pass the little French puppy. I can hear every gear change he makes. Much to my complete surprise, we are neck and neck. I then back off because were coming to the end of the dual carriage way and we need to slow for the 40mph zone, plus theres a Metro infront thats doing all of 12mph. P968 then chooses to overtake me, sees the Metro and then the traffic island and swerves in quickly in front of the Metro. Naughty boy.
I hardly use my Clio and the last time I tried a traffic light GP was 18months ago in my Golf GTI. I lost....to a Toyota Picnic! So, I was more than a little surprised at how flippin quick the Clio is, and that it could play ball with a 968.
No need for anymore Traffic Light GPs now my friends; the humiliation of the Picnic loss has now been well and truely buried.
Praise be to puppy, all praise.
