What's your best driving experience in Europe?

Jump to last reply

I love driving in Europe. I live in Australia where cars are expensive, speed limits are low and the police are well equipped, which simply means driving isn't much fun here. So for me to be able to go to e.g. Germany and drive a luxury car at insane speeds for a hundred Euro's a day seems too good too be true. And I can assure you I have made the most of the opportunity whenever it has come up (and paid the price for it - don't try this in France, kids).

So, where do you drive if you can take any car you want on any road you want in Europe, if you love driving? Here's two of my favourite drives - does anyone have any other suggestions?


1. The road from Brussels to Rotterdam.

This is a really fun drive when you just want an excuse to "flog the crap" out of a car :) The drive overall takes a bit under two hours, but most of it is spent driving in a straight line in freeway conditions, but with traffic lights and speed cameras about every five kilometers. Sounds terrible? Its not. Its amazing fun. Especially at about 5am. Every five kilometers you get to slow down or stop, then when the light goes green you floor it. Over and over again. Just don't tell the car rental people what you have planned..


2. The road from Luxembourg to Brussels.

I once got the opportunity to do this drive very late at night, after a Chemical Brothers concert. It was somewhat surreal. For over an hour the car sat at 200km/h thanks to the cruise control (it didn't go any higher), with me driving "by wire" using the satnav because we were going so fast that the headlights were useless. All good though, its a straight line the whole way. Surreal though, as I said. I imagine it must be something like what it's like to drive one of the high-speed trains like the Thalys or ICE. A whole lot off fun in other words.

Any suggestions for my next drive?
