What did you make of driving Buttertubs Pass ? :?
I thought views were nice but otherwise from a drivers point of view slightly disappointed :o i appreciate many make a beeline for it but for me there are better roads less well known that give more driving pleasure :driving:
I much preferred the road at the end of the pass from thwaite to Kirkby Stephen. Having said that I stopped for that pic then had a good blast down with no other traffic either way, a few nice turns as you start then it settles to being quite straight although bumpy.
Yea , i found there were better surfaces & just generally more enjoyable roads both on the route there & away
When looking for the pass on Friday I took a wrong turn. Went from Hawes towards ingleton. After a good few miles on a great road I realised I was going the wrong way. I pulled over and checked the map and went to turn around as a 3.0 z3 went past. I made chase and caught him towards the end, he seemed to know the road well. He then made a left then pulled into his driveway haha. I do like to follow someone who knows a road well, gives you much more confidence.

Ok, when you say "above" exactly how far do you mean....

Walked the triple terrors back from school today, and took the Mavic..

Got on the drive and decided to flick it up to 400ft, highest I've had it....



Yes, I know she needs a good wash, but I like my cars like my women....

Yup, trying to master the "spotlight" mode in the active track, basically makes your subject the centre of the video, flys around you and still tracks it.
