To give an example, this is a popular road by me for thrashing cars around on a Sunday morning, used to regularly cane it around the mountains with my mate when I had my MR2's and he was in a supercharged MX5. But basically, I doubt that Stingray or many other yank tanks would barely fit on the road, let alone do it without killing you first.

The european ethos on cars is so much different to the american/australian viewpoint because the infrastructure is so much different.......

That is absolutely breathtaking. Wish the topography around here was like that. I live in northern Iowa which best compares to a chess board with the roads being the gridwork.

It is lovely up there, it's the Bwlch mountain, about 5 minutes drive from me, leads into the world famous Rhondda Valleys in Wales. Going up there next week to do some training on my bike, the hills are killer.

Just to the right of the 3rd picture, is a little stone hut, which always has bunches of flowers left there, where morons on motorbikes fail to brake for the very sharp right hander next to it

I love the roads by Bwlch! Oh to live up that way. Whneever I go across to Pembrokeshire I make sure to detour over the Black Mountain pass! On a good day (no sheep ) you can get a real good flow going.
