About Gran Turismo Events

About us

Gran Turismo Events

We create incredible experiences for the top one percent of the world. In 2019, we had 1 933 supercar owners attending our events, on both racing tracks and driving events on beautiful roads. In total, we have over 5 000 supercar owners in our active drivers roster that attend our events on a regular basis.

While our roots are Swedish, our head offices are now in Geneva, Switzerland. Our team, nine people in total, are spread throughout Europe: in Switzerland, Sweden, Poland, Italy and Croatia.

Here is what we do:

Events

Exclusive days on famous racing tracks like the Nurburgring and Spa-Francorchamps. High quality track time with hotel, instruction and full hospitality included. Our track events are famous for their relaxed atmosphere and gentleman driving style.

Extravagant road trips on the most beautiful roads in the world - in Switzerland, Austria, Italy, France, Croatia and Montenegro. Our extremely popular road trips visit places like Florence, Forte dei Marmi, Andermatt, Dubrovnik, Portofino, Monaco and Saint-Tropez. The best roads, hotels and restaurants - always.

Escapes

Weekend escapes are short driving events, two or three days long, in Italy, on the Riviera or the Alps. Fantastic roads and luxury hotels compressed in a weekend escape format. For your convenience, a supercar of your choice is included. Fly in, enjoy a weekend with us in a Ferrari convertible on the Riviera, and fly home.

Special Events Department

Special Events Department is for the more adventurous ideas, like riding in the back seat of an L39 Albatros jet airplane. In 2019 we organised the VIP tour of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant with a squadron of helicopters. We do one or two of these one-off events per year.

Bespoke events

For our corporate customers, where we create bespoke road trips with supercars, making a complete experience for a company or a group of friends. Contact us.

Merchandise

As of spring 2020 we have a clothing collection. Some products are available to the general public, while some are reserved to supercar owners that are members of our La Famiglia supercar owner's community.

Event Infrastructure

La Guida is our custom built digital database of the best roads, hotels, restaurants and places to visit. Also, all the secrets tourists never find. It contains 20 years of event organisation intelligence and covers Switzerland, Austria, Croatia, Montenegro, Southern France and Italy. It is updated on a daily basis and used extensively in almost everything we do.

Rental supercars. We have access to a fleet of rental Ferrari and Lamborghini cars. Want to join an event, but are from far away and can’t bring your car? No problem - we can organise a proper supercar here for you.

Partner network. Working in this sector for so many years builds long lasting trust. We have excellent working relationships with Nurburgring, Spa-Francorchamps, Belmond group, Michelin, Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Mercedes-AMG, Halda Watch Co, Schedoni, SBM Group in Monaco, Groupe Floriat in Saint-Tropez and many more.
