Short blasts...

So, when people get the itch, what are their favourite runs? Ive just been on a short drive through the countryside, around Worcestershire, here
Any other suggestions?

There's a road on the Roseland Peninsula that is pure E9* heaven out of season - every type of fast road from super twisty to fast, straight blasts. 14 miles of heaven.

TBH Cornwall is full of stunning roads for blasting around on. The drive to my local surf break is always great fun for example.

This is it - the A3078 - one of a dozen perfect driving roads less than half an hour away from here:

Any road with as many twisties and straights combined wet or dry with total confidence in my 'wolf in sheeps clothing' to quote a BMW dealer lol.

Penrith to Scotch Corner is always fun

But

Stow-on-the-wold to Lechlade via Burford (ideally at night)

Just watch out for Clarkson who also seems to like it
