Volvo's Great Drive competition winner has been announced on Volvo's official Facebook page.

The competition ran online for two months, challenging entrants to name their favourite European driving road.

The final shortlist of three roads had a video filmed by TV personality Robert Llewllyn driving a Volvo S60 DRIVe R-Design. The videos were then uploaded on to the site where fans voted for their favourite with a brand new Volvo S60 R-Design being given away as the winner.

The winner, with 52.7% of votes in the final round, was Martin Baker's 14.8 mile Lake District drive from Ambleside to Boot. The 49 year old from Northamptonshire can now order his car from the factory for delivery in a couple of months' time.

He said: "I'm overjoyed at winning the car. It’s a truly wonderful surprise! Although I owe it to the fabulous route through the Lake District really – it’s simply stunning. I highly recommend trying it sometime! I'd also like to thank everyone that voted for my drive and Volvo for running such an exciting competition with a great prize!"
