Great roads: Spa v Nür­bur­gring

Total 911 - - Views -

dear Sir,

Very in­ter­est­ing count­down of the top 100 driv­ing roads on the planet. I think over­all it was well bal­anced, though I can’t for the life of me un­der­stand how Spa came above the fa­mous Nür­bur­gring Nord­schleife? What was the think­ing be­hind that?

We’re glad you en­joyed the count­down, Kris­ten. as you’ll re­call, each road was judged by our panel ac­cord­ing to the cri­te­ria of thrill fac­tor, scenery/views and his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance. In terms of his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance, the two are tied of course, and while both roads thrill for dif­fer­ent rea­sons, it was de­cided Spa has the bet­ter vi­su­als, as you can see much of the new track from view­points from the old cir­cuit. In re­al­ity though, it was close be­tween what are two world-class roads which hap­pen to be just 90 min­utes apart.
