To continue the Friday night tradition, we took the cab to the roundabout for a spot of automotive hooliganism, and got a free manual car wash from the nice gentlemen with the water pistols… We were stopped for another burnout on the roundabout, which we expected, but we were also hailed for a fair. He took exception when we informed him that the fare to Liverpool Street would be £800 and took a full blast in the face from a Super Soaker. The crowd were however appreciative of our efforts if the cheers were anything to go by. DYK’s doing us proud!

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.
Now that’s what I call fast service! Cheers to the guys from The Porsche Curves Pool Club who have just served us up a 60 mph bottle of beater from their Skyline bar.
We nearly lost a front light coming off the ferry, but now its taped back on! Also came very close to running out of diesel due to automatic petrol pumps not liking uk cards. Now safely near Abbeville, dozens of Ferraris around but were the only taxi. Thanks to anyone whos giving us a honk as they pass.
