Torpedo Run 2011: One of the last adventures of our timeAhaus, )
The automobile party with participants from all over Europe took three days end led from Bad Ragaz in Switzerland via the posh towns of Kitzbühel and Velden in Austria to the Mediterranean Coast in Slovenia. This year's program offered a new race-track with Formula 1 license, fast bobsled runs and an adventurous off-road excursion over narrow gravel roads in steep mountains - of course not with the own cars.
Premium sports cars in hardcore use
Tremendous power and a pure sound orgy at the Torpedo Run 2011 was ensured by rare sports cars and exotics like Wiesmann MF 5 Roadster, Corvette ZR1, Ferrari 430 Scuderia, Lexus IS-F or an almost 600 hp strong Mustang GT in muscle car style. Additionally, we saw Porsches and compact sports cars as BMW 1 Series M Coupé or Lotus Elise. The participant's cars were varied and let the blood of car enthusiasts stir at every stop, where people already were waiting for the Torpedo Run 2011.
However, the Torpedo Runners didn't just buy their cars to let them get dusty in some showroom but to drive them. The Torpedo Run was the perfect occasion: on routes aside the main tourist roads was one serpentine followed by another. Additionally, the Torpedo Runners enjoyed a lot of nice corners and impressive landscapes with breathtaking views. The insider's roads in the Alps make the Torpedo Run and the pure driving pleasures in a world of canyons and abysses right next to the road.
The participants enjoyed real gourmet highlights everyday by highly rated chefs with regional influences - another important domain of the Torpedo Run, which combines varied aspects to a unique road trip.
Performance-junkies on the race track
One of the highlights of the year 2011: The Torpedo Runners were speeding on the new Red-Bull-Ring, formerly known as the Austria Ring or A1 Ring. Red Bull modernized the track and already received the Formula 1 license. With pressing the pedal to the metal, you could hear the sound of the engines and feel their power, while driving skills were necessary for the fast downhill corners.
High-Speed run through the olympic channel
Torpedo Runners never can have enough action. Therefore, they drove down a mountain in a 3535 meters long roller coaster with steep turns and "jumps" with descents of up to 6 meters.
Even more action, the Torpedo Runners experienced on the legendary olympic bobsleigh run of Innsbruck. With around 100 kph, the teams sped down the 14 corners on the 1270 meters long run down to the finish line in a summer bobsleigh. The maximum height of the corners was up to 7 meters, while 2G impacted on the body. The pilot: no less a figure than Wolfgang Stampfer, who is one of the world's best bobsleigh driver and provided the Torpedo Runners with a tremendously fast descent.
Sports car event going extremely off-road
At another event, the Torpedo Runners switched cars to off-road cars, to traverse a mountain in the Alps off-road style. The route led over a bumpy and narrow gravel road with tight corners, which have been built into the steep mountain slope. Even among experts this is one of the most difficult routes in the Alps - the Torpedo Runners conquered it and gained a whole new mountain experience.
The next horsepower-orgy in the year 2012
The Torpedo Run 2011 proved itself as a legal event for car enthusiast once again. There will be new highlights and other exciting as well as exclusive events, which make every Torpedo Run to an unique experience and promise huge fun for everyone.
The variety of streets and landscapes combined with adventurous and thoroughly selected events and delicet gourmet pleasures are important to the Torpedo Run. The participants agreed at the end of the trip: the Torpedo Run 2012 shall continue this automobile lifestyle.
