The car parked across the disused runway almost feels like a Southern European version of Top Gear!  But before access was granted to motorists eager to test their car’s capabilities to the max on the unobstructed tarmac, this was a frontline Bulgarian military base.  Likely home to a highly capable contingent of Russian-built fighters and ground attack aircraft, the identity of the abandoned airbase is uncertain but could possibly be Dolna Mitropoliya due to the extensive race track covering much of the complex today.
