Already last year car enthusiasts from all over Europe had a lot of fun and celebrated a mobile party at it’s best. This years’ Torpedo Run (http://www.torpedorun.com) will be held between 22nd September 2006 and 24th September 2006. With the starting line at Lake Tegern, South of Munich (Germany), and finishing line in Hamburg, the pulsating city in the North of Germany.

During the run across four European countries, you can look forward to exclusive events, eccentric parties, luxury hotels or gambling in a casino. The Torpedo Run gives you a long weekend of sheer fun!

On the German highways (Autobahn) you will be able to drive as fast as you want. You will also get to know winding roads in the mountains and get to experience the most attractive and highest pass roads of the Alps. New challenges and exclusive events are going to await you at the checkpoints. At the daily finish you will stay in luxury hotels and will experience eccentric parties each day.

Highlight of the Torpedo Run in 2006 is the “holy” automotive proving ground of Papenburg (Germany), which is usually closed for public access. There you can experience modern racetracks and an impressive high speed oval, exclusively reserved for us: The high speed oval with banked curves of up to 49.7 degrees is like a shot of adrenaline when you feel the zero side force. Furthermore the reproduction of the small Hockenheimring, a track known by Formula 1 fans is impressive and loaded with action.

As exclusive as the event are the participants. To mention only some of the cars which have already been entered: Ferrari F430 Spider, Porsche Turbo, Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG, TVR Chimaera and other exclusive sportscars. Whether you are driving a brand-new Porsche or Ferrari, a cool Mini S or a classic Jaguar - your passion for the Torpedo Run is what counts!

The international media is on the spot. In Germany the Auto-Reporter and Sport1.de announced the Torpedo Run already. Even a Chinese magazine wrote an article about the Torpedo Run. The German magazine "Prestige Cars" even entered the whole event to experience a weekend of sheer fun. "auto motor und sport", a very popular magazine in Germany, has announced to be on the spot, too. Furthermore a well known TV station is interested in covering the Torpedo Run.

Whoever thinks they have the determination for one great adventure, should enter the Torpedo Run in 2006. You find more information and the entry forms on

Racing driver and former F1 pilot Timo Glock will join the Torpedo Run (www.torpedorun.com). In 2004 he gathered some points for Jordan in the Formula 1. Last year Timo Glock won Champ Car World Series “Rookie of the Year” honors. And it could be that the young racing driver will start in the Formula 1 again. But first he will experience the Torpedo Run!




Participants of the Torpedo Run can look forward to something very special at the "holy" automotive proving ground of Papenburg (Germany), which is usually closed for public access. Timo Glock wants to give participants of the Torpedo Run the possibility to drive together with him on the reproduction of the small Hockenheimring, a track known by Formula 1 fans. So you can experience as a co-pilot of a professional racing driver the corners and straights in a Porsche 997. Yes, he will dive fast on the racetrack together with you! Furthermore the high speed oval with banked curves of up to 49.7 degrees is like a shot of adrenaline when you feel the zero side force.
