Had a great little blast this week whilst visiting another Mica shop down in Cumnock. Top down there and back. Good to smell burning brakes again :wink:

That is a great bit of road !
Me and a few mates from London had a great blast down there about 5 years ago - including a 'tussle' with a local in a Subaru Impreza Turbo. He had overtaken us (4 MX5s and a Merc SLK) just coming out of Strathaven and seemed a wee bit surprised to have us right on his tailpipe all the way to Muirkirk. By then, you could smell his brakes from inside my car :lol:

Used this road many times on the way to Kames track or working in Muirkirk, but alas unless it has changed the road surface was pretty broken up at places.
