Exclamation Drive thru Slovenia and visit to Akrapovič summer 2013???

Who's going?

So, who's up for another great drive? This time through Triglav National Park in northern Slovenia and a run down to Akrapovič for a factory tour and GB???

Just got this email from them so let's plan it....

"Dear Rick, Thank you for e-mail. We know your forum, it is sure one of the best. Please feel welcome at Akrapovič, we would like to show you the factory.

In order to organize a tour, could you please provide us some information about how many people would attend, with how many cars, what kind of cars, how much time will you have... any special requirements...any need for support regarding hotels, route (we have some nice roads ), let me know. Plus information about where will be visitors from (to make idea about group buy more likely to happen).

Thank you,
Best regards /
xxxxx"


What do you guys think? Summer 2013???

Humm... at first I thought that would be too far away... but its quite close to Aviano, Italy. Count me in for this trip!


Maybe we should also consider driving the Gross Glockner while we are in that neighborhood.

Gross Glockner Pass – Hoch Strasse

I guess we would drive down via Salzburg. When do you want to do this Rick? (Ok, I see it in the subject line: Summer next year).

Same as Stelvio, June 2013. I've driven these roads and actually drove all the way to Croatia a couple of summers ago. The capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, is really only 7 hours from HD so much closer for all of you guys in the eastern part of Germany.

We drive thru Austria, into Triglav, raft on the Soca River, stay at Lake Bled, visit the beautiful capital of Ljubljana and Akrapovic, and drive home through Italy and Austria....maybe a six day trip total. Not only are the roads nice, there is a lot for us to see and do between major points of the trip.

See these photos from our trip...

Since we seem to be headed to a former Iron Curtain country.
A strange fortelling of our next adventure?

(edit) Nevermind the Solveniens probably hated the Russians anyway...I am psyched

I have at least 1 and possibly 3 friends who want to come along after I told them about how much fun we had at Stelvio.

We should get radios this time for sure.

While reading Autoblog I came across this review of the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrara 4S that mentions the area:
Quote:
And so we went, over stunning and sunny autumn roads in Austria not far from the border with Slovenia where there was shockingly little traffic anywhere to be seen. It felt like the mountain roads had been set aside just for us and this latest 911 iteration, the Carrera 4S. Complain, we didn't.
