Blue 3 door GP on A42 towards Birmingham

Always nice to see another GP in the same colour as mine when out and about, tried to keep up but I only have a 1.2 and the road surface went crazy lol.

It's a video, click on it and it'll play. I have Blue Metallica or something like that. My GP is just the basic 1.2 8v 5dr active. It's not very happy at motorway speeds lol, 4k rpm at 70mph is a joke lol

Such small engine is definitely not tailored for highways; lengthen the gears ratio and you'd lower the RPM but lose any agility in the city !

All is always compromise ...

Yeah it was a thought that had crossed my mind before but the cost and such was not worth it. Not only that, I live in a hilly area of the country where the trip to the shops rarely gets out of 1st gear lol so shorter ratios are a must or I'll end up burning out the clutch or something. This trip was once in a blue moon as to say.
