Burn out on the Mulsanne Straight
While returning from the supermarket along the straight, we were accosted by a large crowd. They stuck a pelican crossing beacon in front of the cab, and began the countdown… Revving the cab on the brakes, it moved forward and back on its suspension to much approval from the crowd. The beacon moved and I floored it! DYK sprang forward sputtering slightly from the demand on its tired engine, but it slowly gained speed and headed off down the straight to a massive roar of approval from the crowd. Result! I’ve just done a burnout (well sort of) on the Mulsanne Straight in a 14 year old black cab.
