Lol. It's funny how we all think alike. As soon as I saw that I was straight on the Internet as that road was amazing. He mentioned Hertfordshire and then briefly mentioned Letchworth, when he was driving around town. I found one source online saying the A507. But it seems its clearly BS.

Odd that the local online rag can post this...

(iii) large car-free stretches of the Moulin-Kirkmichael road, Glenshee, and A9.
...and still remain utterly confounded by Clarkson's statement.

It was Pitlochry.

The local paper filmed them months before when they were filming.

Really odd thing to do to claim is was England.

Are you guys for real? Watch the program again and see if you can spot the subtle ironic comments that was about as subtle as a sledgehammer.

I stopped listening to the words on Top Gear years ago. I just look at the pictures and listen to the engine noises. Everything else is background noise.
