Here at Racechip we’re always thinking about our next automotive adventure. All around the world petrol heads brag and debate with their rivals over which are the most exhilarating roads to drive and where the best experiences can be found.

Locations are key. From the glistening alpine peaks that shoulder Italy’s Stelvio Pass to the vast nothingness of America’s Bonneville Salt Flats, remarkable landscapes can make all the difference when it comes to enjoying the road.

A race day vibe can also create magnificent driving experiences for both spectators and contestants. The tight turns of Monaco’s hectic GP create a vibrant and exciting race regardless of who’s behind the wheel. The $500 spending limit of the 24 Hours of LeMons completely reshapes the nature of the race, making it about endurance as well as speed.

One should not forget the heritage, history, and culture of cars either. While Ferrari’s Museo Modena captures the innovation and creativity that spawned some of the most amazing cars on the planet, Tesla’s factory tour illustrates the exciting high tech, low emission future of the industry.

Below we’ve dreamed up our ultimate car lover’s bucket list. Take a look and get inspired:
