look at this idiot outside lane hogger that won't get out of the way of a mercedes that is clearly trying to make progress, even when the centre and inside lines are completely clear.

I wonder how some people pass their driving test, i really do... rolleyes
You are probably too dim to understand how fast I was travelling back then and with traffic ahead I don't think I was causing undue stress to AMG owner, on the other hand sheep plodding along going 30/40 on main roads is just brutal. I've come to the conclusion that the majority of people here are just are useless as all the idiot's I encounter each day.

Acting hard up and clever but in reality probably driving st boxes and unable to overtake for st.

You are probably too dim to understand how fast I was travelling back then and with traffic ahead I don't think I was causing undue stress to AMG owner, when I pulled over I soon was back on outside lane avoiding the idiot's in lane 1,2 and was right behind him again - on the other hand sheep plodding along going 30/40 on main roads is just brutal. I've come to the conclusion that the majority of people here are just are useless as all the idiot's I encounter each day.

You were averaging 83mph while the Merc, obviously faster, wanted to overtake you. You ignored numerous opportunities to move into the middle lane, then made a pathetic effort to outdistance him, before they finally overtook you after 8 minutes.

How is this any different to people 'holding you up' in NSL roads?

Having noted the intellect & downright bad temper on this & other postings how dare PistonHeads ask us to pay up for a window sticker to advertise we too are of the same ilk?

He won’t say it, but it isn’t. I was once told, if you were going to spend longer than 10 seconds in the other lane after you have moved over, then you should do. Especially when people are behind you.

Lane discipline like that is not tolerated on the continent.

Surely this account is now just trolling? Nobody could be that stupid or obtuse coupled with being so argumentative. Bin him.

stupid enough to post a video on Youtube, showing 110mph on the M4 in the middle of the day, under his real name?

See what you did there. Take a look at the Driving at Night thread. His (lack of) popularity was rapidly demonstrated.
