ONLY 6 MILES BUT GOOD FLAT OUT BENDS A REAL BUZZ ,TRY IT ON THE WAY TWO THE BULLDOG
Fast well surfaced road, with fast sweeping bends and not too much traffic - worth trying
From Donington Park, take the A453 to Ashby, watch the new 40 mph limits and traffic lights around D.Park. Fun time to Ashby, taking care not to hit reversing lorries in the middle of the road (true story). From Asby, take road to the right at first mini roundabout, then minor roads to Calke Abbey (brown tourist signs). Pick up and follow signs top Derby, will take you over Swarkestone bridge and to new A50. Very fast road (dual carriageway) back to M1, watch out for the black Omega, it has a video camera and hidden blue flashing lights (another true story). Thsi route has good combination of twisties and frighteningly fast stretches. If you see a big bloke on a ZZR1100, give me a wave!
