Haha, i see i'm not the only person who hates the reverse around the corner manouevre!
Last Thursday my instructor had me do a sweeping left reverse, and man did i make a right royal hash of it!
I was on the pavement, touched the kerb and everything. I was even half on the pavement when a woman walked past with a pram, good job we had the big words BSM on the car!
I wanted to give up at it, but my instructor kept making me go forwards and then backwards again until i got it round...
It was a real site to see!
Yesterday though, he had me do a sharp left reverse. I managed to get it round the corner.
But at the start i went too far past the corner, like half a mile up the road. He said i made life very hard for myself because i had to keep on stopping for cars to go past me!
Oh and at the end of manouevre, i did my usual trick and slammed the clutch down so the car was rolling forwards and i never noticed til instructor said!
BUT i can guarantee you that that corner i managed yesterday, will be a once in a blue moon thing!
