SWMBO and I are holidaying in Devon and Cornwall with the GT3 immediately after Silverstone Classic.

We are booked in at Lynton, Hartland, Tintagel, Camborne, Liskeard and Brixham.
Apart from usual tourist type thing, do you have any recommendations for good driving roads or unusual car/aircraft things to see?

Thanks in advance

Stuart

Devon - B3223 From Lynton to Simonsbath is a must, a road often used for Top Gear / Car mag shoots etc.

A377 from Barnstaple to Morchard Road, then back up via Winkleigh to Great Torrington on the B3220 / A3124 is a must, it's one of my favs Smile

B3212 from MortonHampstead on Dartmoor to Two Bridges is another great road but there's been a lot of Police publicity cracking down on speeding on the moors recently so be aware.

Cornwall - St Ives to Lands End on the B3306 is a good road

A3083 Helston to The Lizard point then back via Kuggar onto the B3293 to Helston is another.

When are you down, happy to meet up for a drive and show you the real parts of the West Country if i'm around Smile

Was the moors clear up near Simonsbath? That part of it is the best, well in the dry, i've never attempted it in the wet :-/

Hi Stuart, have a look at Predannack airfield on the SouthWest Coastal Path.

It's still officially still MOD property but is more of an aircraft graveyard with Harriers, Helicopters, Jaguars, Dominie and a Canberra.
The neighbouring Culdrose still uses it occasionally for SAR practice and gliding.

Very interesting place to look at but i accept no responsibility if you get in trouble!

Will post a full report when we get back to Norfolk, but as a taster, see what the nice guys at Williams Crawford in Saltash had to say:

Hello, new joiner and GT3 owner here. I grew up down in Penwith and looking forward to getting the car down there. Did you do the Penzance to Lands End road, and the Lands End to St Ives road which is also super scenic, a bit slower but equally amazing?

The north coast cornwall, Devon and Somerset road (A39) is also one of the best out there. I did that on the motorbike last year and had an ear to ear smile.
