What motorist can deny the appeal of the Isle of Man Snaefell Mountain Road? Thirteen-miles of exhilarating, speed limitless tarmac, sweeping to 422 metres above sea level, with gradients of up to 14 per cent, and countless tight bends and sheer drops. What’s more, on this road you’re tyre treading the hallowed halls of the history books, with the road making up part of the Isle of Man TT course – the UK’s oldest motorcycle racing circuit still in use. In 2014, National Geographic magazine designated the A18 Snaefell Mountain Road as No. 8 in the Top 10 Driver's Drives.
