if you get the right opportunity both can be qually exciting. NOS dragster (1/4 mile) or WRC or Track racing (Formula Ford, Formula Nissan, F 2000). What the hell under the right conditions even Stock car (NASCAR) can be fun.

Default Re: Which gives u a bigger thrill???

Re-opening a super old thread because I was browsing the site to find techniques about driving around winding roads! Sorry don't hate me mods, just wanted to post stating that I plan to make a trip to Coorg in my auto-box Zen (dont laugh!) soon. The poll interested me - Winding roads it is! Again, sorry for posting on a super old thread.

Its mostly got to do with the car you drive too.

Personal experience: Zen and Swift literally brings a smile to the face on a winding road when you see your car going exactly on the line you wanted. When driving a non turbo Indica diesel on the same roads, the smile turns into a frown.

Flat out on twisty, windy roads, preferably in my 1986 Alfa Romeo Spider with some mates and one of my sons.

Here's us a few years ago. We took four Alfa Spiders for a week to Scotland to celebrate the graduation of my oldest son from university. Every day, breakfast at 0700am, by 0800am we're in our cars and drive all day. We stop every now and then for some coffee, bit of lunch, for taking pictures. Around 1700pm we start looking for a nice B&B or hotel, nice dinner and the next day we start all over again!
