Postcard from Gran Turismo Adriatica and Portoroz

Published 2017-05-09 by Administrator
Hello from Portoroz and Gran Turismo Adriatica

Our glorious road trip to the Adriatic coast - Gran Turismo Adriatica - has just started. On Saturday afternoon, the drivers arrived to Peague. With 27 cars attending, the event has been fully booked since January. The journey started on Sunday, with a drive south towards the first stop, which was in Salzburg, Austria. Last night, the group arrived to the Adriatic coast and the beautiful city of Portoroz. Thats in Slovenia.

Today the real fun begins - the drive on the Croatian Adriatic coast highway - also known as the Magistral. One of the top ten best driving roads in the world. Goal for tonight is Zadar. After Zadar, the entire group head to Bosnia. Yes, Bosnia. You will get a full report from Montenegro on Saturday morning.

Our in-house photographer James Holm is joining us for the trip. Here are his best shots so far. Enjoy!
