Top Gear: ‘the best road in the world’

Fabulous 3 minute excerpt from BBC’s Top Gear, driving down from Balea Lac at the top of the Transfagarasan Highway. Drivers and riders, watch this (clip at bottom of page), then come and try it yourself.

Jeremy Clarkson yells from his drop-top supercar: “Romania – thank you for having us! And can we stay… forever?”

Here’s a YouTube half-hour vid taking you the whole way up and over the top of the Transfagarasan Highway, the highest road in Romania and one of the highest in Europe. Great driving – but much better in person, in the flesh (in the metal). Come and try for yourself, then come back to Magura in time for supper.
