Both mountain passes, Nufenen and Klausen, are favourites of Paddy. Even though these are two completely different to drive. Nufenen has a wide road, starts with long curves (from South) and has a few serpentines ‐ a nice road for a VW Scirocco. Klausen Pass, on the other hand, has narrow roads, it's hard to overtake and one has to take corner sharply. Sometimes Paddy wished he would own a four wheel drive to improve sharp acceleration after driving around a corner. There is debate about background music in this episode. Paddy experimented with classic music pieces and metal songs in the second part of the episode. Well, some like it ‐ others not so much.
The thing about Irish roads is that you'll never know what comes next after a hill or a bend. Just close your eyes, come and rely on the luck o' the Irish.Paddy Murphy, 2012
