Amusing driving moment

Amusing moment on the drive back to Fareham this night:

I took the Bury Hill route again (which this time was fortunately lacking in car-eating puddles) and acquired a small convoy somewhere south of Pulborough. As soon as I reached the (national speed limit) dual carriageway at the bottom of Bury Hill, the car behind decides he's had enough of following me and zips past. He disappears round the first corner... and then without me accelerating I catch up a couple of corners later, as he discovers that it's actually quite a steep twisty turny road up the hill. I think he was doing maybe 35mph by the summit (I know I had to drop down to 3rd to keep enough power)!
