I've put a couple more videos up on my YouTube page from the weekend we spent around PortMeirion. I really should stop trusting the SatNav ;)

Nice sounds on that Mick.
I would **** myself if it took me down those lanes - I hate it when you can't pull in and have to reverse...

I was getting sweaty palms the longer it went on, especially when I could see stone behind the greenery at the side. The Ghibli felt very wide.

Headed out in the Alfa Spider yesterday as the sun was shining. I do need to find a way to get more noise out of it. New exhaust perhaps ;)

Good video. I found myself in the driving position looking ahead on the road!
Was it really that bright last Sunday?

Glad you liked it.

It was so bright I couldn't use much of the footage from the rear camera as the sun washed it all out. It was a spur of the moment drive up to Whitby but really paid off with the weather. I did scare myself silly on the way to Hutton-le-Hole though. Four wheel slide towards a ditch in a corner. The sun had cleared the ice but the corner was in shade. I was a little more tentative over the tops on account of that. Still less tentative than everyone else though :D

Shot a little bit of video on the way back from Lynmouth a couple of weeks ago. Only the two cameras but you can get the idea of the road. Shame about the traffic.

Spent a weekend on the Isle of Man a couple of weeks ago with the Maserati Club, I took the red trousers but didn't wear them in the end. There were some great roads to drive and I spent most of the time with the car festooned with cameras. Here's a video of the first Friday afternoon trip along the TT Mountain Road.

First video from the trip to the Pyrenees and Spain in the new car:


I had a longer run in the same area planned but didn't count on there being a cycle race on the road which closed it to traffic. Shame as there was an R8 in front of me, it would have been fun to keep up :D

One from earlier in the trip. I'd had the car less than a week and was still a little tentative


More to come

The weather closed in the next day which was a shame as the drive up the Col du Tourmalet would have been much better in the dry.
