Forgot about last Sunday night 10/6/13.
Driving back from Santa Cruz, CA over HWY 17 (twisty, hilly, narrow, and dark 2 lane freeway) around 7PM at night. I was in the fast lane in the Esprit at moderate to fast speed. Most people don't drive that fast at night, so I'm moving at a good clip.
All of a sudden, a Toyota Corolla pulls in behind me, tailgating at a high rate of speed. He hangs with me on the gentle turns and straights.
I know a tight radius (that decreases quickly) is coming up. So I accelerate, knowingly full well the Esprit is going to out-corner and spank the Corolla handily.
The Corolla turns up the testosterone and matches my speed, only to lose control and ALMOST slam into the concrete divider. He swerved heavily and luckily maintained his line as there was traffic on his right side.
Suffice to say he was shaken and dropped way back, never to be seen again.
Luckily he didn't crash - the traffic behind him would have been unforgiving.
