Rory Reid (ex Top Gear, now with AutoTrader UK) reviews a C8 Corvette in the following video:




But can anyone spot anything that says it was shot on the other side of Mt. Hamilton?

I don't know that side as well as the San Jose side...

Thanks.

Karl.

PS: At the 10:27 mark, he says the C8 has a 7-speed PDK... it's actually an 8-speed Tremec…

Actually this looks like near Joseph D. Grant Park as you can see the fencing that goes along side of the road. Also dead grass area. I don't think he went past Lick Observatroy.

Thanks for the feedback.

I think I'll take a run up there this weekend.

Yup, I agree. So I've added it to the top post as follows...

South Bay / Santa Clara County
  • Mt Hamilton Rd to Lick Observatory (starting at Clayton Rd.) - https://goo.gl/maps/5SZtntEdyYy (~16 miles)
    • Great hill climb up to the telescopes at Lick Observatory, and has even been referenced in professional articles/features:
    • Others think the back-side of Mines Rd. to Lick Observatory (from Livermore) is even better
      • See East Bay section above...

Found the spot where he does the external walk-around. That starts at the 5m10s mark in the video.

The location is here: https://goo.gl/maps/AEBhHNsn5vNduJWQ8

And a pic at the same spot from this morning...
