West Kinglake to Whittlesea = Daytona!

  1. I was looking for an interesting way to get home from Kinglake yesterday and I wandered off towards Whittlesea on a whim.

    Initially I regretted the decision as the road was straight, flat and boring for about 10k - but I stuck with it and found a top little bit of road just before Whittlesea.

    It's ony 5-10km but it's a pretty unique sort of road in my experience; it's extra-wide, with very broad shoulder runoff areas, and there's 10 to 15 70k rated, heavily cambered corners as you go down into whittlesea. The view's pretty nice, and the road's super-grippy. It reminded me of Daytona!

    I'd love to do that stretch at about 160-180kmh, it would have to be one of the best sets of super-fast sweepers I've seen in Vic!

  2. It's Hot!
    I like going in both directions, but probably more so going up; as there seems to be more overtaking lanes in that direction. :grin:

  3. Yeah, you're right, there's double lanes going most of the way up. Still, double lanes means you have to go a lot faster to feel like you're working it!
