I was thinking today about where I'd most enjoy driving. If I had the choice to take my vehicle anywhere in the world, assuming licensing is irrelevant, where would I go? I was immediately reminded of Top Gear's quest to find the best driving road(s) in the world, and thought I'd showcase their findings as today's post!
The Top Gear cast primarily focused their search around continental Europe, so I'm going to consider this "Part 1" of a series of "Best Driving Road" posts that I'll be doing. Enjoy!
Col de Turini
San Bernardino Pass
The name of this pass should be recognized automatically by driving enthusiasts. It's a high mountain pass with an elevation of over 2000 meters, if I remember correctly. In addition to its bends and hairpins, it is mainly recognized for its amazing scenic views. I personally would do whatever it takes to be able to drive through this pass! Oh, and there's also a 6.6km tunnel somewhere along it.
Davos to Stelvio (via Bormio)
Just taking a look at this picture makes my pulse race and my hand making down-shifting motions instinctively! It is widely regarded as one of the most difficult and challenging roads in the entire world, and with 60 hairpins, it's easy for me to see why! I think I'd have to work up to this one.
Next, I'll be posting roads from North America since that's where most of my viewers are from anyways. Cheers! images from redlineblog.com
