A Mecedes whose badge said SL55, raced up my rear last night very threateningly. Normally I would pull over thinking "Oh! its a big fast Merc", but I was in one of those moods were I thought "What the heck".
I dropped from 6th into 5th and made quite a gap. I dont think he was too pleased but he was very eager for a blast. I would have to say that from a standing start there wouldnt have been much in it, he might have got in front for a bit, but stretching my gear changes to the latest second I was just able to match him. In my 4th gear the Merc deffinately couldnt catch me up.
This sort of game went on for most of the motorway journey and I beleive we where quite evenly matched.
There was one passenger in the Merc and both he and the driver looked like very big heavy lads, a little less weight and I really dont think I would have stood much of a chance. Thankfully the blast ended in one of those pleasant exchanges of thumbs up to one and other.
