Has anyone tried to race you or tail gated you?

I have a fella in a Merc C Class tailgating and mouthing words at me. I just carried on driving as usual and came to a round about. I went right he went left, but I looked in the mirror and saw him mouthing obscenities.... It was a pimped up C Class. No idea what model.

Other than that it just general head turning....

Has another on here been in a similar situation in their GT86?

Had an AudiS3 race me off the lights whilst I was running in - did stab the throttle a little which made him floor it and then let up in second gear whilst he disappeared into the distance -, was also tailgated by someone in a 53 plate E55 AMG who horsed it passed me - I was driving normally - Its gonna happen with the GT86 as it looks the business...

Haha must admit I smoked an A4 today coming out of a roundabout. I was the perfect distance as I entered the round about, gathered speed and floored comming off right behind him onto a dual carrageway. Must have been donig 20MPH faster than the A4 as he puffed smoke out trying to stop me going around the outside
I'm still a child at heart....

1st roundabout usually separates Hachiroku from the poseurs!


I did exchange smiles with a guy with an impressively Islamic beard in an MX-5, who tagged along with me for a couple of roundabouts. But as you might expect, it was all terribly good-natured.



It does turn heads though.

Let them win...

It just makes them feel more insecure, knowing they drive a less satisfying car...

I've had people slow up behind me then pull up alongside me and stare but no one wanting a race.
When I'm on a dual carraigeway I drive nice and sensible and I had two guys in a BMW overtake me looking at the car yesterday and they turned off the A10 in front of me at the junction where I was going too. As we came down the exit route to another roundabout I gave it a little blast, went past them then threw it round a roundabout in VSC with the a*se out a tad. Thats what a GT86 is for.
