04 - 08 mai (Balkan, Europa)

Vårens store eventyr starer når Autoxo tar med seg gode bilvenner til Balkan. Vi besøker flere skjulte skatter og  får kjøre på noen av verdens vakreste veier. Dette er virkelig en tur for livsnytere og eventyrlystne.

Event schedule
We meet in hotel Milenij in Opatija (Croatia) on the 4th of May. A beautiful spring day. During the evening we have a drivers briefing and dinner on the hotel terrace facing the sea. We will have some word of advice for this slightly mental road trip with your super car.

The following days we travel. Driving on roads like the famous Adriatic coast road in Croatia and the insanely beautiful mountain roads in Bosnia and Montenegro. We visit exciting places like Zadar, Mostar, Dubrovnik, Podgorica and Tirana. After Tirana we head back north to end the event in Trogir/Split. We do not go to all the way to Greece, as in 2018.

Each day will be between three and four hours of driving. Besides driving we do stops along the road for lunch, historic monuments or just to enjoy the view. The time schedule for each day is: breakfast at 9.00, start driving at 10.00, lunch en route, arrival to hotel during the afternoon and dinner at 20.00.

Ready? Here we go. This is the complete schedule for next years drive of Gran Turismo Adriatica.

Our drive south continues. However, now we switch from the Magistral coastal road to E65. A highway. Not only "a highway" - the E65 is one of the fastest and perfectly smooth highways on the planet. It was built for one purpose only - guess what?

After about two hours of quite dynamic driving we stop in the village of Makarska for lunch. Then, we drive north east to Bosnia and Hercegovina, to Mostar. Haven’t been to Mostar? You are missing out. Mostar is, albeit semi destroyed from the war, a very beautiful place. So are the Bosnian roads.
