It seems like yesterday when we were working on a pre-registration form last year November for the Bends&Curves 2022 road trips. Exciting, because it would give us an idea about the amount of participants we were able to attract with our tours. In hindsight we can say that we were a bit overwhelmed and humbled by the dozens of people who let us know they would love to drive with us, without even knowing exactly where we would take them. Pretty soon after we were able to share the details of our plans:
- April: Eifel Run
- June: Trans Alps tour
- September: Goodwood Revival tour
So sit back and relax and put it in reverse why don’t you. We’ll take you back to April, June and September 2022.
EIFEL RUN 2022
The kick off of the driving season started at the Spa-Francorchamps race track and took us to Adenau. This charming Eifel village, home of the Nürburgring, was our home during three days. From Adenau we drove the magnificent Eifel roads, a different route each day. All routes were provided by 360Nürburg, the brilliant coffee table book of 360Roadbooks.
TRANS ALPS 2022
The participants of Trans Alps 2022 assembled in Baden-Baden (D), the spa town that marks the northern border of the Black Forest. From there, we drove the famous B500 down to Switzerland, to attack epic passes: Grimsel, Furka, Süsten, Gotthard, San Bernardino, Splügen – and so on. After crossing Austria, the tour finished in Ottobeuren (D). An amazing tour it was with a wonderful group of people.
GOODWOOD REVIVAL TOUR 2022
For a long time, visiting Goodwood Revival has been on top of our wish list. This year we decided to make this event the highlight of our September road trip: the Goodwood Revival Tour 2022. Next to being teleported to the 50s and 60s to see amazing race cars , we drove the best roads for the drivers in South East England, visited some very nice venue’s like Beaulieu Motor Museum and Ashley & James Coach building and met the wonderful people of Lotus Drivers Club and Club Lotus. Steve Crijns, who designed the Lotus Elise S2, 340R and Evora, explained his work during a design talk about these cars. Such sweet memories we have of this tour!
