March 2016 Lotus club drive to Thredbo – mountainous driving at its best. The Sydneysiders meet up for the journey down.
Lunch at Brumbys schnapps restaurant.
Arrived at Thredbo with the beautiful mountains all around.
The main day of alpine driving starts with a photo of all the cars at Dead Horse Gap.
All the guys taking photos of the Lotus spectacle
Driver briefing before we head off on our days alpine drive.
I didn’t get any other photos of the day, but it was around 500km’s of very fast and the best fun driving I think I’ve ever had. A loop through all the Alpine regions best roads. I do have some videos though, here’s though the tighter twisty mountains:
Stopping at the top of one of the mountains, note the Black Elise got a bad puncture, we were all looking to help.
Driving across the higher ridges with all the dead tree’s
After a good night out at the Black Bear German restaurant and a good night’s sleep, we’re all off again.
My co driver Ian with my Lotus club nickname on the roof.
On the way home we stopped at the same old wooden bridge I took the photo of my RS4 4 years ago.
I was invited by friend Courtney on 3rd March to the Australian launch of the new Porsche 911 (991) generation 2 launch party. Interesting technically as now Porsche has switched ALL their 911 models to use turbocharging, something the purists are not so happy with.
After some videos about innovation and building on the past and some puffs of smoke, the new car was unveiled, and I was impressed.
