Col de Turini, France
Situated more than 1 mile above sea level, Col de Turini is a mountain pass situated in south of France in the Alps.
It's also part of a 20 miles rally stage of the Monte Carlo Rally of WRC, which combines 34 challenging hairpins and long stretches where cars top 111 mph.
It is one of the most exciting roads on Earth.
The pass was featured in the very first episode of Top Gear series 10, when the presenters went in search of the greatest driving road in the world.
At its highest point, Col de Turini is 1607m high.
In the north, the Col de Turini starts with a dazzling series of hairpins.
Finally, we end up riding in a gorge, with a wild river on the left,
and a steep rock-wall on the right.
