Took MINXD down the M11 yesterday afternoon.

Started coming up behind a Silver Cooper with Black roof. NP.

Once I was quite close, it speeded up and matched my speed. Again NP as I wasn't in a hurry, they weren't hindering me & it's nice to ride in convoy with another Mini (1, 2, 3 Ahhhhhh!!!!).

Eventually, the other car backed off a bit and I went into the o/side lane & overtook, giving the (v. pretty :D ) lady driver a wave, which I got back with a smile :D :D

I had to stay in the o/side lane to overtake a lorry too but whilst we'd been cruising along, another faster car had turned up in the o/side lane behind me. I looked in my rear-view mirror & saw in horror that the Mini was trying to change lane with the other car right beside it :eek: 6 inches away (& over the dotted line) she realised & swerved back into her lane. Phew!

I can only assume that she was, shall I say, excited about seeing another mini & our mini-convoy & getting a wave, that she forgot to pay attention to her surroundings and the other traffic.

Fortunately no harm done on this ocasion, but she'd've got a large fright & given the willies to her two passengers. So, moral of story is that although it's great to see other Minis out there, don't concentrate on them too much & forget the road/other users.

(PS If said lady reads this, drop me an email & we can meet up ;) :D )

I think the site you are looking for is DATELINE

or maybe if you do manage to get together, you should change the title of this thread to "If you can't be good, be careful..".;);)

And to think certain people wanted to put a stop to this kind of behaviour. It's all in MINI context.

Fantastic stuff......

Oh, dear. I had said "no comment"..... oops.

Oh dear, have I done something that will be frowned upon?
Only just getting into the swing of this forum, and am I already creating enemies?

It's just my twisted sense of humour, but if that's a crime.... guilty as charged M'Lord.

I think I was that faster car . . . thanks for eventually moving over.

And by the way, I don`t think said lady was even aware of you or your MINI because she appeared to be busy applying her make-up when I stormed past.

One Born A Day

Jakx

& you'd like to tell me the reg (prefix/suffix will do)/make/model/colour of that car you were driving? :rolleyes:

I don't believe that if it had been you, that you'd have had any trouble with my road ettiquette & certainly the "faster" car in this instance hadn't. However, the "faster" car was both a lot lot faster coming up behind us & aggressive in its positioning, so a nice advertisement for his character :(

:p
