"We’re on single-track lanes here, cut into the Surrey hills with steep banks and passing places."

"The Corvette Grand Sport is wide, but the standard Stingray is actually two inches narrower than a Jaguar F-Type."

"The Corvette feels extremely quick. Partly because it isn’t that heavy."

That's a nice read. Know those roads well from having lived in the area for a couple of years. Used to hustle my Mustang GT along those same roads.

I remember it fishtailing in the wet in those sunken lanes thinking I was going to bounce it off the earthen banks.

Brighton is easily doable using only country roads and on a busy bank holiday, much quicker too.
