Church of the Holy Donut Video

Looks like Barcheta, Bst1, 360 Modena, and Wetpet leaving the Church for a backroad drive...

It's called church because it's on sunday mornings, when we should be in church. It's called the holy donut because it used to be in front of the dunkin donuts. It has since moved across the street. We consistently get hundreds of cars every weekend. Mostly rods and muscle but we've been known to get as many as 20 exotics out there. we usually use that get together as a jumping off point for a "spirited" drive through our favorite country roads. It truly is an amazing parking lot get together. anyone within reach should check it out on a nice summer weekend.

I was sitting at home bored by the enforced holiday we have in the UK between Christmas and New Year. Thinking of excuses to go in to work and daydreaming about unsalted roads. So I trawled a few FL threads ( have no idea what the FCh problem is actually about - probably more relevant to the USA members??? ) and came across this thread.

The cars looked really cool scooting up the 4 lane road ( made me yearn for unsalted roads - again). There was also a mention of country lane runs after the " church" meet.

This got me thinking. The 4 lane street in the clip looks like just a normal urban outskirts road. Except it is 4 lanes wide. Only a few of our UK motorways have that many lanes! Then I wondered what an American country lane is like. Probably nothing like the twisty narrow ones interrupted by villages at 5 mile intervals like in the UK/ Europe.

I then wondered what experience USA FLifers have of UK/ EU roads and vica versa. And which roads are best suited to Fcars. This probably warrants a new thread. Apologies in advance - not sure how to do that.

Back to this thread. Church of the Holy donut - looks like a really cool meet. Beats cutting the lawn on a sunday. Wish we had the enthusiasm for something like this in the Midlands.

Sundays are fun around here. There are a few shopping center areas where cars gather for show, and these become meeting places for a caravan up to the next show. The Church of the holy Donut is the largest nearby show, and afterward the guys like to romp with the cars. I think the roads through upper Montgomery County Maryland were designed by a frustrated road course designer.

With 5 Million Americans living in Maryland (one of the smaller to normal sized states), upper Montgomery County has many backroads similar to a never-ending road course (two lanes divided, so only one lane for driving). Passing is rare since they wind up, down, and side to side through tree-lined roads. So, driving at speed is fun, too. Many times there is no way to see over the top of the approaching hill or around the corner, so you have to scout the advanced area from a high point before approaching it at high speed. For the brave, tires leave the ground and cars come down to find an angle of driving different from the landing. This can go on for hours with little to no traffic, and steering gets full use of the wheel around many of the fun corners. I'll admit that getting behind a couple of "slower than 30 mph vehicles with no sign of passing available" can feel like an eternity. The 4 lane roads are just outside of these roads, and just outside of them is the 4 to 6-lane (each direction) highway I-270.

Unfortunately, Speed Cameras are popping up in the oddest areas now. They used to just be near schools, but now are found in areas where the speed limit is ridiculously slow and no one is around (IMHO).

There aren't any traffic cameras on the backroads (because there are no lights), but if you click on the link below and scroll up toward the upper right, you'll see Burtonsville, Maryland (Rts 198 and 32). A google search could give you an idea of what the roads look like from above.

I know England has great roads (when the weather cooperates), too.

Michael, thank you for the descriptive narration of the roads there. With such enticing roads, it is no wonder thoroughbreds are bred, a little fanatic, maybe. w/ smiles Jimmy

Your car used to give me a headache because it was so loud on that WVA High tour.

Awesome Jim.

Not me, I think my TR sounds better than that (test pipes, sans cats, with a Tubi).

If you look closely, the TR has stock wheels and engine cover.
It must be Nathan's 512 - all stock, no tubi or glass/carbon rear decklid.

Nice video though - we should shoot and post more.

He needs to remove the pre-cats and cats then. It sounded too tame.

Where is he anyway? Has anyone told him about Ferrari Life?

That's my F355 Spider in the first. Have Capristo + Hyperflows + K+N, sounds as close to an F1 as I can imagine!
