Autocar - - BRITAIN’S BEST ROADS DRIVE -

B5305, Cum­bria: look at it on the map and you won’t see a lot of curves, but this road has many crests and troughs. Ford’s M-sport use it some­times, I pre­sume be­cause it’s open, quiet and fast enough to get air over a suc­ces­sion of crests if you’re bold. The straights al­low for over­tak­ing, the few bends chal­lenge your brak­ing skills. Big mo­ments for your re­porter? In­ad­ver­tently get­ting air in a Mustang GT, be­ing rear-ended in a Honda CR-V, re­mem­ber­ing where some of the curves ac­tu­ally are and en­joy­ing the beau­ti­ful scenery.
