Im with Towed on this one. The road down the Lofoten Islands is simply out of this world beautiful full of tiny colourful fishing villages, dramatic mountains and crystal clear sea. Its great all year round but I would recommend anybody planning to go there to see it in late March/early April, its very cold then with lots of snow around but it still has dark nights which is great for the Northern lights. An over night stay in Leknes is also a must.

Think my roads would have to be:- The Stelvio Pass in Italy, Transfăgărășan Highway in Romania, Monaco Grand Prix route, The Overseas Highway in Florida, The Iroha Zaka in Japan, The Lysebotn Road in Norway, The Jebel Hafeet Mountain Road in the United Arab Emirates.

One of the greatest roads I have been on was whilst on holiday in the French Alpes at Courchevel 1850. The roads were very bendy but the scenery was awesome!

Yeah the oversea highway is a great drive (shame i did it in a people carrier) the route 15 to Vegas is also a good'n

I found a great road going into Andorra in the pyrenees last year, I'd love to do that one again!

Yes its very inspirational i posted a link on my thread last week, it makes you want to badge the car and join the Millie Miglia race albeit as an imposter.

May be if a few of us fancied it we could get together and give it ago.

Well funny you should say that, I would like to do the following, when I finally get mine finished (I mean started).

He's my other dream drive (a pipe dream)

Tremila Miglia (3000 Miglia)
  • North East of England
  • Dover or Folkstone (Ferry or Eurostar)
  • France
  • Calais
  • Paris
  • Milau
  • Montellier
  • Provence Region/ Marseilles
  • Cannes
  • Nice
  • Italy
  • Genoa
  • Pisa
  • Florence
  • Rome
  • Assisi
  • Bolenge
  • Modena
  • Milan
  • Turin
  • Switzaland Boards (Poss Geneva)
  • France
  • Calais Via the Loire Valley
  • Then Back to the UK

Over seven days, about 8 hours driving a day, should be fun, with a little sight seeing thrown in too.



Just now sure how reliable a 40+ year old car will be after I have rebuilt it.

Haven't built the car yet, however just about to go into the 'Museo Nazionale Dell'Automobile' in Turin after a fantastic drive through the mountains yesterday. Went onto the roof of the old Fiat factory where they had the test track featured in the rooftop jump scene in 'The Italian Job' No publicity for the film there and not easy to find or gain access to the roof. The rest of the building is now transformed into shops, cinema etc. (I suppose it did take the pi** out of the Italians!)
Great drive down but it is a long way from Devon.
Used to live quite close to Viaduct de Millau and I agree that is quite something even though I am not keen on heights. If you drive down and over the bridge make sure you go down to the viewing areas which show how it was built, and when you look up to it you then realize what a feat of engineering it was in the short time it took to build.
