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.

On the way home we stopped at the same old wooden bridge I took the photo of my RS4 4 years ago.
