I don't know about you lot, but I reckon about the only place you can have fun on the roads today is on a nice slip road.

Clear view ahead, often light traffic, nothing coming the other way, and NO CAMERAS!!

On my route to work, I go up one from a roundabout, up a hill onto an NSL dual carriageway, and as the engine is fully warm by the time I get there, it's the one place where I can 'clear the crap out of the exhaust'.

Today, on a curved slip road down to a motorway I had the ESP cutting in at 70mph! Great fun!

Unless you find the 40mph brigade in front of you not getting up to speed quickly enough:crazy:
 
You need to sharpen up your technique in Italy where the autostrada sliproads can be very very short indeed.
I've had the C230K all the way to the redline 1st/2nd/3rd accelerating from pretty much standstill on the autostrada.

this wouldnt be a contest to see who can reach the highest speed on a slip road before braking to the speed limit? AMG owners and bikers from here then...
 
The aim of the slip road is to blend in with the traffic safely.

The best way to do this is to leave the sliproad as fast as humanly possible (Any less than 100mph means back of the class) and to smoothly transition to the V8 lane.

Remember folks, if you are going faster than everyone else, no-one can hit you :D

Or, for real fun, join the B660 near Sawtry, get off near Kimbolton, amazing road.

Dave!

<nods head in agreement>

Or do it in reverse, via Sawtry, head towards the B1040 near Ramsey for a blast back to Biggleswade and you're on the A1 to return back to Sawtry :rock:
