GOOD­WIN’S BEST ROADS IN EUROPE

Autocar - - BRITAIN’S BEST ROADS DRIVE -

Take the D928 out of Châtil­lon­sur-seine and fol­low it un­til it turns into the D959 at Re­cey-sur-ource. It’s part of my route to Geneva and there’s never any­one on it. A mix­ture of twisty sec­tions through wood­land and wide open blasts. The Gross­glock­ner pass in Aus­tria is a fa­mous hill climb venue, and when you drive it you’ll see why. I was once com­ing down it in a Porsche 356C Car­rera when its brakes over­heated. My pas­sen­ger was most ag­i­tated. For­get the hyped Stelvio pass in Italy and in­stead drive the Furka pass in east­ern Switzer­land. Gletsch is the town you’ll start from and the 6 is the road it­self. It’s a fast road with a great sur­face and lu­narland­scape views at the top.

Europe has some spec­tac­u­larly good roads
