Tasmania Roadtrip

Hey guys

Just got back from a 5 day roadtrip in the North West end of Tassie. If anyone's looking for good winding roads coupled with a great view of the ranges I recommend you make the trip over the Tasman sometime.

Highlights included chasing down an Evo X back up Cradle Mtn Lodge and playing pace car to a Golf GTi between Queenstown and Craddle Valley.

Routes worth taking are:
Davenport - Cradle Valley via Oliver Road (bypassing Sheffield)
Cradle Valley to Queenstown
Craddle Valley to Sheffield and Mole Creek (lots of hairpins)

Below pictures from the trip including a snap of a Porsche GT3 on route to Davenport to board the Spirit.

DCT took a bit of getting used to at first. Never had an auto / dual clutch that behaved like a manual before.

After that it was great. Wore a bit of the front tyres due to some agressive cornering in Tassie but otherwise it drove and handled excellently.

Junkie,

Great shots. I am sooo looking forward to mine... still waiting the arrival dates based on the fact that I'm waiting for the MY10 (total punishment). Certainly love the colour - Space Grey all the way!

How do you find the mileage on the tank? Any chance you have some shots of your interior?

Zenderm - its a naturally aspirated V8 so it's no prius. I get about 400kms in mix city and freeway driving on a full tank.

Always wanted this configuration for my m3 so I'm loving it!

Your black with be easier to maintain overtime I'd imagine and if you have kids that's probably the better colour option.

Hmmm no kids that I know of Junkie. I have been told by a few friends that I'll meet a girl soon enough... not that I have ever understood how to pick up a chick with a car? What do you do - drive past a cute one and ask her to get in? Haha
