Gran Turismo Polonia 2013

Gran Turismo Polonia is a three day track driving event on Tor Poznan in Poznan, Poland. Marching into its ninth edition, Gran Turismo Polonia has become the most important super car event in Poland. It all started back in 2005, when Peter Ternström invited his fellow super car owners in Scandinavia to his second home country of Poland. Since then, no other event attracts so many super cars to Poland and the race track in Poznan each year.

Parking on the premises of Andersia Hotel in Poznan in 2012. Over 140 super cars visited Poznan and Gran Turismo Polonia, amongst them this immaculate Lamborghini Aventador and a Koenigsegg CCX.

Poznan and Tor Poznan

Situated in the far west of the country only 250 km from Berlin, Poznan is one of the major cities in Poland with over 800'000 inhabitants. Due to a high concentration of universities some 200'000 are students.

Poznan is also the home of the only race track in Poland - Tor Poznan. Tor Poznan is a technical and fast track, which takes a lot of practice to master. The track got new asphalt after our first visit in 2005 and is now in very good condition.

Gran Turismo Polonia 2010The main object for our driving sessions on Tor Poznan is to find the ideal line of the track. The ideal line consists of positioning, breaking points, turn-in points and curve apexes. The instructors are eager to help you find the optimum line for your car and driving style.

We drive according to "open pit lane" regulations. This means that there are no strict driving sessions - you can go out on the track whenever you like.

During the examination on the third day, your skills of driving a fast lap on the ideal line will be put to the test.

Koenigsegg CCX on the opening ceremony of Gran Turismo Polonia 2012. Over 60'000 people came to watch, more than any football game played in Poland during EURO2012

30 June at 15.00 - Opening ceremony on the streets of Poznan

Ever since the 2009 edition of Gran Turismo Polonia, the organizers have, together with the city of Poznan built a temporary race track in the middle of the city. This for an opening ceremony open to the general public. The opening ceremony was an instant success and attracts spectators from all over Poland.

During the 3 hour-long opening ceremony all the spectators will be able to feast their eyes and listen to the on pure mechanical muscles of Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches and all other super cars attending the event.

Imagine driving your Ferrari at full speed on a closed 3.2 kilometer circuit in the middle of a city, when some 60 000 people are watching. It is an incredible experience.

The first day at Hlonda street was great for publicity but as the regular viewer I must admit: last year or 2 years ago was better. We were standing much closer to cars. "The track" wasn't so long so we could get great experience of seeing acceleration and breaking in very close distance. This year we've seen many cars just driving by. No excitements about seeing good show. In many cases you couldn't even say which one was going faster. Besides at the beginning of Hlonda street there is a little bend which enabled to watch only "1st gear" segment.
I hope next year you'll be back at better place than Hlonda. Anyway big thanks for coming back to Poznań. You're very welcome to coming here more often guys ;))
