Published 2024-02-14 by Zdravko Anticic

It is that time of the year again. We bring you our absolute favourite photos from the past season. The pics are taken by Nicolas Grandi, James Holm and Ivan Caravona. Enjoy.

60. The crowds awaiting the drivers in Slupsk, Gran Turismo Polonia.

59. Nurburgring. The Porsche 992 GT3 RS is such a great car on this extremely challenging track.

58. The amazing colour on Tomasz and Leszeks Lamborghini Aventador. Gran Turismo Polonia

57. The moment Stefan Burlin accepted to go as a passenger in one of our instructors' specially prepared Mercedes-AMG GTRs on the Nurburgring this year. There is absolutely nothing to be afraid of. Everything will be OK. Welcome Stefan. Enjoy. You will be just fine.

56. Strada 222 Chiantigiana between Florence and Siena. An amazing road in Tuscany. Not only the views, the road is an incredibly exciting drive.

55. Patrik and Renata in their Ferrari F8 Spider on the Adriatic coast. This particular stretch of road is near Makarska in Croatia. While we go at the beginning of May, there is usually very little traffic, making the driving fantastic. One of the top three roads on the planet. Bucket list for all supercar owners.

54. Klas and Torsten in their Lamborghini Huracan Spider going down hill on Passo dell'Abetone approaching Pistoia. This is a wonderful road. From our special event with the Swedish Royal Automobile Club in October.

53. Patrik Johansson sporting the most fashionable socks in the world.

47. Arguably the best meat restaurant in Italy, Solociccia is an icon in Tuscany. Run by the famous TV personality Dario Checcini, this is a favourite stop during our annual event Gran Turismo Toscana. The lunch has eight courses in total, trying everything from ragu to fiorentina steak. Don't worry, they have delicious vegetarian alternatives, too.

46. Ulf and Lucia leaving Slupsk in their Ferrari 488 GTB.

45. The incredible scenery in Tuscany. This road connects Volterra and Saline di Volterra and is one of the most entertaining in Tuscany.

15. Not sure what is going on here, but the picture is from the city square of the city Slupsk in northern Poland. Thousands of people came to see the 100-ish supercars that arrived to the city, parked on the square and had lunch. Next year we are visiting another two new cities just like Slupsk on Gran Turismo Polonia.

14. Lots of speed in this picture of Anders and Nobuko in their Ferrari 488 Spider in the somewhat uncommon blue colour. Picture is from a beautiful country road near the Baltic coast in Poland. This is Gran Turismo Polonia.

13. Robin driving his Lamborghini Huracan STO in the small karusell on the Nurburgring. I can hear this image, that V10 sounds just amazing. Probably one of the best sounding cars ever made. Our next event on the Nurburgring is in June and is sadly fully booked.

8. Nicole and Patrik enjoying their Maserati MC20 Cielo on one of the best roads in Italy, Passo dell'Abetone. This is the unoficcial test track of Ferrari, and Enzo Ferrari's favourite road. Conveniently located just half an hour south of Maranello. This road is VERY entertaining, and any supercar will start making a lot of sense there.

7. This insanely good shot from SP13, Passo Vestito, in Tuscany. This mountain pass was made famous from the James Bond movie Quantum of Solace. Gran Turismo Toscana is 9-13 of October and there are still some places left. Ferrari included!

6. These two now classic Honda NSX cars on Tor Poznan during Gran Turismo Polonia. Both cars are signed up for the 2024 edition.
