The duelling Ferraris of Northbourne

Not something you see every day.

This Ferrari and a same model black one had a short race against each other on Northbourne last night.

The place echoed with the sound of them both howling away from the lights side by side and up one block. The black one peeled off before being stopped.

I encontered one of these nobs today on the road from Bungendore. Yeah, tha road with all the curves. The idiot started to overtake me right where the lanes merge. It was the third of three cars that decided to overtake right at the end of a 2 km overtaking lane. There was plenty of room for two but you didn’t need to be a genius to know the third one was never going to make it even with me slowing down to let the first two past. It was a white “hot flash I’m better than you” car rego zz 000. I had no choice but to merge into it’s side and force it on to the wrong side of the road. Luckily nothing was coming and the idiot got past me with no contact. I bet that driver is not long for this world. It did the same thing about 2 weeks ago on the road past the airport.
I think I’ll be making a stat dec tomorrow.

So what you’re saying is that you were in the left hand lane and then kept beside another motorist forcing him into an oncoming traffic lane when your lane ended?

And you’re going to sign a stat dec stating that you did this?

I guess it’s good to make it easy for the traffic cops; get agressive drivers off the road until they learn defensive driving.

Sounds good, filling out a stat dec is just like an anonymous ‘dob in’ service for road users.

Make sure you fill out the full name, address and occupation in the first box and remember that this information and the contents of the declaration won’t be witheld from the person you’re accusing of breaking the law.

School formal season brings out alot of interesting and exotic cars – we saw lots on Friday night, especially outside the Convention Centre.

I doubt related to school formals, but we ended up behind a newish Jag on Northbourne with British number plates. Someone couldn’t live without it!

Saw that XF Jag in the Canberra Centre a few weeks ago! Looks great, but surely they’re required to have ACT plates by now??

Did you make a statement to police – with the photo of the car? Registration easy to track down and car seized for street racing for 3 months.

So it’s ok for a car to be seized for 3 months from one unsubstantiated statement made to police about racing but you can have keep your car after your 10th drink driving charge as long as you promise not to do it for an 11th time.

Makes perfect sense.

Somehow I don’t think CUB budgets stretch that far.

Driving on Northbourne yesterday I saw the black one. Driver was late 30’s I think and pre-teen passenger had a gold iPhone.

I saw a Lamborghini parked outside Pushys Bike Warehouse in Fyshwick. I wonder if the owner was inside buying a $3K MTB?
