• Last time I had the pleasure, EuropCar only had a Citroen left. Downhill, with the wind behind me - she hit 159kph with speed wobble! Was overtaken by an elderly woman in a run of the mill hatch back who threw me the finger.

That said, it does depend on the crew on the day (and how on the ball they are - if it's a quick 'cabin secure' during turbulence, often they will miss it in order to get to their own safety/seat)...
