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


Any questions or application issues please let us know.

GOOD LUCK………

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 live in the middle of some of my favorite mountain driving roads so my daily commute(when there's work) is often actually fun at least part of the way. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs along the border of the county I live in so I drive that portion of it quite a bit, along with va40 and va8 getting to it. I've noticed those mountain are getting some attention lately, with sightings of car clubs of kids in Jalopies, scared looking Mustang drivers and the occasional supercar cruising along the tight undulating mountain curves... But even those aren't my favorite.

There is a stretch of va58 in Grayson county that runs from Grayson State Park in Mouth of Wilson Virginia, all the way into Abingdon through Jefferson National Forest that is just short of incredible. Well over an hour of tight twisting climbs and equally gnarly descents that will test your brakes, your arms and even your eyes, with views and a constant onslaught of scenery and wonderfully banked turns of all types. It's only a few hours further to the famous "Tail of the dragon" but way less crowded, even in the fall leaf season(2019). There are even campsites down on the creek bottoms with park signs that look like they were placed in the 1950's. I hope to do it again one day soon.

I've heard a lot about the tail-of-the-dragon, im sure all the roads around that area are windy and awesome!
