Happy October! We're back with another offer of one free set of pads (front or rear) to one randomly selected forum member.

In past giveaways We have discussed our first cars, garage and storage spaces, famous people we have met or would like to have met and weird and wonderful vehicles amongst other topics.

This month I would like to start a conversation about the most magnificent drives you have ever taken. Where on this beautiful earth have you driven that took your breath away? Do you have a 'favourite road' to drive on? Is there a particular trip/ adventure/ vacation you have been on that you remember fondly for the drive itself? As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said; 'it's not about the destination, it's the journey'.

Or maybe where you live is so stunningly beautiful every single day driving is spectacular! Photos welcomed but not required, I would just love to hear your driving stories.


The lucky winner will be randomly selected and announced within a few days after the closing date of 1st November 2021 and details will be posted on this forum within a few days of the closing date.

Please be aware that this thread may appear in more than one section on the forum and one winner will be selected from the whole forum, not a winner per thread.
Pad choice will be based on availability and where a chosen pad is unavailable, an alternative will be offered.

If you are not the lucky winner, remember EBC Brakes are pleased to be able to offer a 10% discount off their braking products to all members of the forum community using code FORUM10USER
This discount code can be redeemed at EBC Brakes Direct | EBC Brake Pads | EBC Brake Discs or with our USA partners at Perfect Brakes | EBC Brake Pads | EBC Rotors

Does nobody have any fond memories of being on the road, heading on vacation, or simply remember a particularly beautiful drive they've done?

I know i will always remember driving through Alberta from Banff to Jasper, stopping at the Athabasca Falls Columbia Icefield. Just driving through the mountains is always breathtaking.

I've always wanted to drive up and down the PCH in a convertible. I'm pretty sure that's why Hertz has Mustangs in their rental fleet.

While not a "magnificent" drive, I volunteered to drive a group of friends to an amusement park for a day. We left the amusement park pretty late, just as it was closing. On the way back we stopped at a burger restaurant. Well the service was awful we waited around an hour for our food to arrive at our table. We were too tired and hungry to go anywhere else but after we complained we got a free meal so we weren't too mad. BUT when we got back on the road we hit a 2 mile stretch of traffic that took us a ridiculous 4 hours to cross! there were no exits or way off the highway so what should have been a 2 hour drive home became 6 terrible hours.
