I love to drive all out on Defense highway (450 in AA CNTY) when I go to Annapolis Mall. But my last trip up that way I got stuck behind a old man in a slow ass Ranger. I not mad at the man because he chose to drive the posted speed limit. Just wish they would put a passing lane in that area.

Re: Defense Highway a FUN road to drive if your not behind a slow person. (Breaker-Breaker)

who needs a passing lane?!?! that stretch w/ the small bridge on it is a perfect passing zone... as is the part before the 25MPH turn(goin towards the mall)

i was following a GSXR1100 down it today... well, more like trying to keep him in sight

the freshly paved stretch is almost exactly 1320ft too. late night 1/4 runs are great. house is right before that stretch too. one run down, one run back, hang a right and I'm home. can't beat it.
my new favorite AA Co road is Bell Branch road. it's only 1.5lanes wide, with no shoulder and earthen "jersey barriers" on either side and twisty as hell. can't beat it. chesterfield rd is fun too, but has more traffic during the day.

How about St. Stephens Church Rd.... get all back deep in the woods... end up near Staples Corner. Those are some nice twisty turns... watch out though.. many ppl have bit it on those roads.
Defense highway is a nice run... i know exactly the part you speak of with the bridge... I let it rip there.
Also.. Dairy Farm Rd... nice little stretch past where the Boys in Blue sit and shoot radar... can hit a buck 10 there no sweat... no roads connecting to it to worry bout ppl pulling out or turning on to it. hehe

St. Stephens is too torn up with all the new construction back there. Came out of a hard, off-camber left at about 65+ and hit a line of cold patch in the road that upset the car and damn near put me into a tree. Hopefully they'll repave before too long.

going down the hill on river road... the 2nd corner, the tight left hander.... yank the ebrake, kick the ass end around and drift all the way through it(takes a lot more perfection in my GTI than it does in my dad's A4 1.8t quattro....)... thats the same turn where i came to the realization that when you drifve a RWD car(93 325i 5-spd) w/ 225/245 AVS Sports on it... and you switch to Kumhos on the back.... don't expect it to still grip under full throttle in 1st gear comin out of turns

You guys also may want to try Westphalia Road off of Brown Road in Upper Mayberry (Upper Marlboro) PG CNTY. Lost of turns and hills. WARNING Also has lots of driveways and blind corners. Plus its exactly two lanes wide with no shoulders and dirt retaining walls.

Good stuff!! I'm fairly new to MD, and I only knew of a couple good places to play...now I have some ideas of where to go!
Back home (in NH), we had tons of fun roads to romp on, it's a lot harder to find them here.

Hey Breaker-Breaker....I work in Lanham....I'll have to keep my eyes open for you.....

first time ihauled ass down that road i came around a bend to find a school bus across the entire damn road.... the look on the drivers face as i slid sideways to a stop was quite amazing as well.. its great to HAUL down the hill from the ice rink and then nail the brakes into the easy right and then the 90º right hander... pull over, and smell dem brakes

Has anybody in P.G. County driven on Church Road in Bowie. I love driving on that road, I drive down the whole road then make a U-turn then do it again.
