Great roads: Spa v Nürburgring
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.
