Had an a$$ hole driving too close to me for a few miles, so I knew I could loose the guy on a hill, so I floored it up the next hill in my mk2 Golf Gti.....lost the idiot behind me but when I hit the top of the hill/bend/dip I lost traction slightly and ended up on the wrong side of the road. Luckily nobody was coming the other way, thank goodness....but scared the heck out of me and I learned a valuable lesson!!!
used to live on the north edge os Salisbury plain. Driving back from a friends at night along twisty undulating B road, counting bends as I knew a bad one was coming up on a brow of a small rise. Counted wrong hit it too fast ended up on the wrong side. Thankfully I refused the 2nd beer and got round ok.
