With the March equinox only a few weeks away, it won’t be long before we can all enjoy the pleasures of spring again and, if the weather permits, what can be more invigorating than a leisurely drive through the great British countryside?
In a poll of 2000 motorists last year, Shell named Britain’s favourite road as the A470 that runs through Snowdonia National Park and the Brecon Beacons in Wales. Snake Pass and the Cat and Fiddle Road in the Peak District were a close second and third. As these roads pass through some of the finest countryside the UK has to offer, it won’t surprise you to learn that in the same survey, the M25 was voted Britain’s least favourite drive!
Over half of the motorists polled said that a sunny day would inspire them to go for a drive on a familiar road, a further 21% said that discovering a new place would also be reason enough. So why not hit the road this spring and enjoy the familiar sights the season has to offer from the comfort and safety of a classic Jaguar XJS?
