The best pictures from 2016 - places 20 to 11

Published 2016-12-31 by Administrator
Every year there are thousands of pictures taken during our events. From these we select the 30 best ones. Pictures that have that extra touch or that extra something that makes it stand out from the rest. A tradition since a few years back.

A few days back we sent you the pictures on place 21 to 30. Tonight it is time for place 11 to 20. Enjoy! Happy New Year!



20. We start in Slovakia, on the brutal 6km Slovakia Ring track. This track is both challenging and a lot of fun. Gran Turismo Slovakia 2017 is in August next year - much better dates than the previous years. Also, we have managed to rent Hungaroring just two days before(!). Budapest and Hungaroring is just 2 hours of driving away. This makes Gran Turismo Slovakia and Gran Turismo Hungaria a perfect combo for August next year.

19. The look. We like the way the drivers face reflects in the rear view mirror. Picture taken on Gotland Ring. Next year we have moved the event on Gotland to 26-30 July, to be in Visby on week 30 instead of 29. Week 30 is much better for us. All Swedish know exactly what we mean. Next year this event is organised by our sister company AutoLife, just like our other Swedish events.

18. Markus Hendriksen showing off his enormous biceps. As you can see, he is in perfect shape. Ladies (and some men) really like him. He has also completed the Swedish Iron Man “thing" called Tough Viking, much unlike another driver from Stockholm who also likes to spend time in the gym every day.




17. Busy pit lane on Auto24Ring in Pärnu, Estonia. Awesome track, awesome country and the funniest hostesses in the world. We are happy to go back to Estonia 12-16 July in 2017. Gran Turismo Baltica 2017 is now about 70% booked. An increase of early bookings since last year.

16. Dinner during Gran Turismo Nurburgring. Nurburgring is one of the most man-focused area in the world. Just cars and racing wherever you look. In the restaurants they serve steaks and drink beer. Joining our event as a woman driver means that you will get all of the attention. We wish more female drivers would do just like Susanna, Sandra and Carolina on the picture.

15. Driving in Croatia. Insanely beautiful roads, great food and beer. A lot of fun with the boys. Picture taken during Gran Turismo Adriatica. Next edition of this event is 6-14 of May 2017.

14. Kristo is victorious (again). One of the fastest guys on the track, Kristo is happy to set yet another great lap time. Picture taken in the pit lane of Auto24Ring during Gran Turismo Baltica.

>> Gran Turismo Baltica 2017




13. I see yellow, I click like. We love yellow cars. They look really good on pictures. Want to make it to this list? Get a yellow car next time. Picture taken on Gran Turismo Baltica 2017.




12. Anders going full speed in Eau Rouge on Spa-Francorchamps in his green Manthay Porsche Gt3. A great picture. We love how the track disappears after the crest. This is the best corner in the world - period. Next year our event on Spa-Francorchamps is a week earlier - 3 to 6 of October. 

>> Gran Turismo Spa 2017 




11. Extremely elegant man in Visby, during one of the dinners on Gran Turismo Gotland. The picture has an air of warmth that we really like. Also, the man is dressed and groomed impeccable. When the rest of the group also dresses in white, well then you have a picture that makes it to place 11. Next year our Gotland event is organised by our sister company AutoLife, hence the name change.

>> Gran Turismo Spa 2017




Last year we released the movie where Peter and Bjorn raced each other with an airplane and Lotus to find out who was the fastest on a drag strip. This year it is all about the best car in the world. And, it is not a Ferrari, Lamborghini or a Porsche. Nope.

The best car in the world is the Fiat 126p. Bear with us and let us explain. All the best for 2017 from the Gran Turismo team.

Peter, Bjorn, Justyna and Michal
