Day Three - Back on the Road - The longest day

This was the big one. We planned to do as many of the west coast stages as possible and then dash back across to Launceston. A fairly epic drive - dawn to dusk.

HOLY MOLY. Not a word of a lie - there would be several hundred km of twist after turn after crest after twist and so on. An no other traffic. Perfect driving surface. Perfect cambers. Beautiful scenery. It was absolutely amazing...

Here's a few of the stages we did are covered here in Day 4 and 5:

Here's a guy from the local porsche forum running the Queenstown-Gormanston leg. Queenstown looks like this from copper mining...but all of the roads are a lot like this...
