2010 Highland Drive - photo thread 10 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 217
I realise I will probably leave myself open here for some abuse ... but ... I am having problems getting a reliable and fast internet connection. I am currently on a poxy GPRS connection.

If we manage to get things sorted I will post up a photobucket link here.

So far I have done about 600 miles and the car is going great. Some mad drivers and a very quick pace being set. Weather was pretty bad today but great yesterday and due to be good tomorrow.

2010 Highland Drive - photo thread - PHOTOS ADDED! 10 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 217
I am now sitting at Troon a little early for my boat. As I have finally got a reliable 3G connection I have uploaded my 89 pics to photobucket (reduced size).

CLICKY LINKY FOR PICCIES

The weekend was brilliant if a little tiring. I have covered 1101 miles so far with another 40 or so once I get off the boat. Seriously good roads with long fast sweeping bends and great surfaces.

This trip is a must for any serious MR2 owner and will certainly allow you to test your car.

I have a few vids as well but I will post them when I get home ... my battery is a little low (and just once I get a connection )

See you all soon

You missed a great weekend's drive mate.

You should definitely plan to go next year if you can.

I cut some of my vids together. No fancy mounts for the camera here so it is a little bumpy, but you get the idea. I used my soon to be patented velcro on the dash camera mounted ......... enjoy

excellent, what kind of video camera did you use, im thinking of getting one, would most likely be using your patented velcro idea

nice vids I was fearing for your taste in music after the 1st couple of songs but you redeemed yourself

what about a modified gps suction cup holder for your camera? if you're just using the video function on a compact camera then it should support the weight no problem

cheers guys

I used velco stuck to the top of my dash centred on the steering wheel with the other part stuck to the bottom of the camera. This made is pretty easy to start and stop the camera without taking my eyes off the road.

Worked pretty well.

As for the music ... I was listening to 101 Disco Anthems, a great album for putting a smile on your face and I thought the tunes were slightly ironic for driving vids

Switched to the harder tunes for the more hardcore roads. The run with the Nirvana tunes on it were unreal. While they look pretty good on the video they are even better in real life. If you like driving your 2, or any car for that matter, then you need to go to the Scottish Highlands. These are some of the best roads you will find anywhere. A list has already been started on the OC site for next years drive if anyone is interested.

Dont judge me for my taste in music. EVerything is on the cards in my car, it just depends on my mood.

There was one occasion when we stopped near John O'Groats for lunch on a very rainy day. I put on walking on sunshine top volume with the windows down. I had two mini-buses out of their bus dancing in the rain

I even made a special effort to listen to Paolo Nutini and Biffy Clyro just because we were in Scotland ... didn't bother with the Proclaimers though
