Pack your bags, fasten your seatbelt and say good bye to the real world - its time for a week as a rock star with Gran Turismo Polonia again. This is where everything started nine years ago. Gran Turismo Polonia. An event that has gone from very humble beginnings in 2005 to the most important super car happening in the former eastern bloc. An event that attracted close to 150 super cars in 2013 from all over Europe. And is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2014.
Open day at the track with 60 000 spectators
A first for the 2014 edition of Gran Turismo Polonia is that we are opening the gates at the track to the general public. Not every day, but the final day. The Saturday. On this day we expect the same, if not larger number of spectators to the track as during the street shows during previous years. This will be the largest public event on the track since Robert Kubica came to the track a few years ago. The track is preparing for 60 000 spectators. Something like this has never happened before.
Poznan and Tor Poznan
Situated in the far west of the country only 250 km from Berlin, Poznan is one of the major cities in Poland with over 800'000 inhabitants. Due to a high concentration of universities some 200'000 are students. Poznan is also the home of the only race track in Poland - Tor Poznan. Tor Poznan is a technical and fast track, which takes a lot of practice to master. The track got new asphalt after our first visit in 2005 and is now in very good condition. The main object for our driving sessions on Tor Poznan is to find the ideal line of the track. The ideal line consists of positioning, breaking points, turn-in points and curve apexes. The instructors are eager to help you find the optimum line for your car and driving style. We drive according to "open pit lane" regulations. This means that there are no strict driving sessions - you can go out on the track whenever you like. During the examination on the third day, your skills of driving a fast lap on the ideal line will be put to the test.
