This week's Autocar describes an epic 24 hours in a new GT3.  The route is worth saving for a future trip.  Here's the first part of it.  I'm not sure why I can't get it to condense to a short URL but I'll fix it later, then add the Scotland leg and add more to it.

There's a great fortnight's driving to be had in the complete lap.



To read about the car itself, look here.

The route to Scotland....

'for the length, breadth, quality and sheer accessibility of its best roads, if all you want to do is drive, this is still one of the best places on earth to do it'

When I drove toWales it was incredible to drive there on a proper motorway, with slow traffic keeping left, and faster vehicles on the right, traveling at a speed that facilitated the flow of traffic. Cars merged without difficulty, signalling well in advance of their actual merge.

When I reached Wales, the roads were beautifully maintained and I was unmolested by the police, cameras, or slow moving locals.

I'll have to try Tasmania again!

And head back to Wales on an AE trip!  :)

Late Jan/early Feb was the last I heard.

Here's some Scotland. The author bottled out so I filled in the rest.  Really, too many good roads to choose from....
