The Road Best Travelled

Having just returned from a two day Hunter Valley bespoke tour, I'm reminded of the variety of great drives and spectacular backdrops available on the doorstep of Sydney.  Within forty minutes of leaving the city we were enjoying our 993 Carrera and 997 Carrera S on the exposed ridges and winding descents behind Peats Ridge.  I'm still torn between the beauty and classic lines of the 993 versus the silky power and hidden punch of the 3.8 litre Carrera S.  Fortunately we had an opportunity to sample both during our trip up and back :)  I've long favoured the Putty Road route to the Hunter region however am starting to think this route offers both more elevation changes, a greater variety of scenery and, perhaps most importantly, less traffic than either Putty Road or the more direct freeway route.  

A big shout out to our wonderful guests for the weekend (Andrew and Andrea) - thanks for your warmth (and hospitality).  We're certain we'll see you again - whether it's in one of our Porsches or your own 911!    Sydney - the best Porsche drive location in the world?
