Sti wrx prodrive for sale!!!

got caught by the old bill tonight on my way back from a friends house, a bmw was right on me bum and a open A48m, so me being me booted it, bmw staying up the side of me, i see some lights coming up fast behind me, i slow down and bmw shoots off.
Next thing police car shoots off down the road and up the slip road following the bmw. i thought dam that was close, carried on and came off at my junction, police waiting on the roundabout, they follow me then 5 police cars block me in.
130mph recorded and dangerous driving charge.

im such an idiot

ive heard the coppers are using dummy cars - (a black evo 8 included) for tempting people then doing them... The evo apparently lures people into giving it some - around the corner coppa is awaiting!

Hope all works out Lee - keep us informed.

Ive told myself im nmot going to worry, will get a solicter to plead guilty but to lay it on thick that it was a moment of madness, if i lose my license i lose my job, my rented house blah blah and hopefully get a very short ban.
But in th emean time i have 6-7 weeks before the summons come so hey ho.

Oh and yes they did get the beemer, and that 1 series was dam quick, i had to drop into 5th. wonder what engine he had

i dont mind the police, if you dont break the law there is no problem, i knew i was breaking the law as soon as it said 71mph, so might fault entirly. If you take th e risk expect to get caught.
I have an application at the moment to join south wales police, i think i might get rejected.......
