The best images from 2015 - Happy New Year!

Published 2015-12-31 by Administrator
Thank you for a great 2015 season. Now, as every year, we select the 30 best images taken during our events. 20 of these we have already sent you. Here are the top ten. The ten very best images from 2015.

Happy new year and hope to see you in 2016!

Peter, Björn, Justyna and Artur




10. Saint-Tropez. Villa Romana. What better place to have the closing party of the year? Picture taken during Gran Turismo Europa. Thank you Björn Anders Braathen for an amazing night.



9. Gran Turismo Polonia. If you haven't been to Poland with us, you have no idea what you are in for. Not only is the track and the city of Poznan amazing. The interest from the general public and the media is absolutely insane. In 2015, there were more than 175 super cars attending from all over Europe. Want to be a rock star for a week? Join us for Gran Turismo Polonia 2016.



8. The amazing Praga R1-R. A street legal version of one of the most brutal rides you can own. She is not bad looking either, like most girls in Poland. Picture taken during Gran Turismo Expo in Poznan. Picture taken by Kamila Karpinska. You will surely see more of her images in the next season.



7. Pokerface. Here you can clearly see who has played poker before. And who has not. Björn, it is not about the cards. In this game it is all about staying cool. Compare Björns face with the two other, more seasoned, players by the table. Picture taken during the traditional poker tournament on Gran Turismo Baltica. Great fun organised by our dear friend Veiko Krünberg. We love Estonia. Probably the best country in the world. See you again in late July!



6. Briefing dinner during Gran Turismo Polonia. You might say that this image is just a normal dinner. It is not. It is much more. Let me explain the significance of this picture. There are almost 300 people in this room. Many of them didn't know each other before a few years ago. Most of them met here. In this very room in Andersia hotel in Poznan. Keeping in touch way beyond our event in Poland each year.



5. Robert Zwinger in his Speciale. We met this amazing man in 2015. He lives his life to the max. He is now a role model for all of us. Robert Zwinger is the way. Like there is no tomorrow.



4. Gran Turismo Spa. What many say is the best track in the world. We do, too. Spa-Francorchamps is absolutely fantastic. This picture captures the moment like no other. A solo Ferrari going full power on Spa-Francorchamps. It is poetry. Absolutely beautiful. In 2016 we visit this track in October.



3. Gran Turismo Nurburgring. A Porsche GT3 on the most demanding and unforgiving 21 kilometers of asphalt in the world. A track that scares us, and at the same time amazes us to the point of insanity. Some spend a life time to master this track. We love that the car is orange, and kind of stands out from the background. Exceptional picture by Stephen Hall.



2. But sir, we only have 20 places in our garage! Oh really? Challenge accepted. We fit over 35 cars in the garage of Grand Hotel in Portovenere during Gran Turismo Europa. This super car chaos was captured by the young and up coming photographer Mick Kok. Be sure to see more of his work in 2016.



1. Night shot on the Nurburgring. To fully appreciate it you have to understand how difficult it was to make it happen. You need an extremely good relationship with the Nurburgring. You need to ask them if they can open the track just for you. At night. Also, you need a sunset in the background. Thank you Claudia, Michael and Rebecca at the Nurburgring for helping us with this moment. You are the best. Thanks to you, this is the best image from 2015. It was taken by Stephen Hall. An awesome photographer that will hopefully join us for the 2016 season.  


The 2016 Calendar



Gran Turismo Slovakia (27-30 April)

Next season starts in Slovakia. With two days on the brilliant six kilometre long Slovakia Ring. And three nights in Bratislava. For 2016 we are staying in this city for the weekend, arriving on on a Thursday, driving on Friday and Saturday and leaving on Sunday afternoon. The event is 1900 EUR for two people sharing one car, and includes two days on track and three nights in a five star hotel. Full hospitality every night.

>> Gran Turismo Slovakia 2016





Gran Turismo Adriatica (7-15 May)

Before you read this, please sit down. Because this is going to rock your world. We are organising the road trip of the decade. Starting in Prague and going all the way to Montenegro. Driving on the beautiful coast of Croatia, and visiting places like Sarajevo and Dubrovnik on the way. As you know, Gran Turismo was founded on the spirit of adventure. In 2005 we went to Poland. This roadtrip follows the same tradition. Gran Turismo Adriatica will be an insanely fun trip this spring. The event includes eight nights in hotels, lunches, dinners and one hell of a story to tell your grandchildren. It is 3800 EUR, for two people sharing one car and includes everything for a full week on the road. Fully booked.

>> Gran Turismo Adriatica 2016






Gran Turismo Nurburgring (1-4 June)

As in previous years, we have two exclusive days on Nurburgring Nordschleife. And, with only 120 cars allowed to join, the quality of driving will be very high, with the participants being able to experience lap after lap without any other traffic in sight. A magical experience on the Nurburgring. Three nights in Lindner Hotel with dinners and lunches included. The event will be 2900 EUR, for two people sharing one car. Two full days on track and three nights in Lindner hotel. Full hospitality every night.

>> Gran Turismo Nurburgring 2016




Gran Turismo Polonia (29 June - 3 July)


Where it all began twelve years ago. A true classic. That now is one of the most important super car events in Europe. An event that has a huge following of fans in Poland. As always we have three days on track, and four nights of fun in Poznan. The event is 2200 EUR, for two people sharing one car. Includes three days on track and four evenings of mad fun in the city of Poznan.

>> Gran Turismo Polonia 2016




Gran Turismo Gotland (21-24 July)


The race track on Gotland is probably the best racing track in Sweden. And, in the end of July, Gotland is a great place to be. For 2016 we will have two exclusive driving days on the track, and three days of fun in Visby town. We will stay in Clarion hotel, the best hotel in town. And we will have fun every night with dinners and parties in viking-style. Just as in 2011. The event is 1800 EUR, for two people sharing one car.

>> Gran Turismo Gotland 2016





Gran Turismo Baltica (27-31 July)


We love Estonia. It is an awesome country. One of the best in the world. Here you have Pärnu, the racing track Auto24Ring and Rannahotell. You also have Rannahotells terrace situated directly on the best beach on the Baltic sea. A perfect place to have dinner with your friends after a long day on the track. The hotel will be completely refurbished for 2016. The event is 1900 EUR for two people sharing one car.

>> Gran Turismo Baltica 2016




Gran Turismo Europa (27 August - 4 Sept)

As in 2015, we are starting in Munich and ending eight days later in Saint-Tropez. However, the route is new. Next year we are going to visit Sankt Moritz. We are also and going back to Stelvio Pass and the Mustair valley. One of the most beautiful roads in the world. We only have 30 places available for this event, of which 22 are already booked. The event is 8400 EUR for two people sharing one car. Fully booked.

>> Gran Turismo Europa 2016




Gran Turismo Spa (9-12 October)

The last event next year will be Spa-Francorchamps. Instead of doing it in the early spring, we are moving it to October. This is a very good idea. Spa-Franchorchamps is the best track in the world. In October the weather is much better. We are staying in La Source hotel. The event will be 2300 EUR, for two people sharing one car.
