Just can't get enough of driving my car at the moment, so any excuse to go out in it makes me happy!

Seeing as I am only round the corner, im gonna pop into Petrol Head Nirvana tonight at Ace.... Any takers?

But where do you go for some decent roads, very hard to experience fast gear changes and a little bit of steer from the rear. Even on a Sunday hertfordshire isn't that great, just too many cars on the road. My ideal road would be some bendy nsl's linked up by roundabouts. The baldock buntingford route is okay but it doesn't last very long.

You should have come up to Yorkshire on Saturday. Loads of empty twisties in the Dales apart from the cyclists and the sheep.

Tried the B656 between Hitchin and Codicote? At Codicote, head for the A1, but take the back road down to Welwyn (B197), then go thru' Lemsford and take the 653 to Wheathamstead (I'll be going along here myself tomorrow as I've got to go to Hemel, for my sins). You can actually follow this all the way to Luton Airport, for a quick blast down the 505 back to Hitchin for another lap;-)

I also like the back road from South Mimms to Radlett, which is not very twisty, but still a nice bit of road. You get the added bonus of watching all the traffic sitting on the car park;-)

If you don't mind country lanes, the Essendon Road from Hertford to Potters Bar is superb, although the stretch from Hertford to Essendon can be fraught due to the quarry trucks that go down there. After Essendon, it's great tho', with some nice sweeping bends. Also off that road is the road down to Cuffley, which brings you out at Cheshunt.

Well, you won't see me (my GT is Ninja!;-)), as all I do is blat down the Stevenage/Hertford road twice a day. Rarely need to go near your end of Herts really.

We'll arrange some drives sometime soon. Need to finish running first;-)

Actually, on the way back from Hemel to Hertford today, I remembered the Old Welwyn Road, so I went for spin along there. Well, it was only a small detour;--)
