    Shelby Run Europe is a trip of a lifetime! 10 days, 8 countries, 2500 miles.

    After picking our cars up in the port at Rotterdam we will head out and hit a couple of the unlimited stretches of the Autobahn, we will take some laps on the Nurburgring, drive thru the Alps and the Italian lakes. Then we hit Monaco (yes, Monaco!) and on to LeMans for the LeMans classic race where we will get a parade lap on the track. For 2012 LeMans is celebrating America's involvement in the race, includingFord, Carroll Shelby, the Mustang and the GT40. :beer:

    We are limited to 20 participants from the U.S. and we currently have two openings. If you are interested, please contact me at [email protected] for more information. The price isn't cheap, but it is a super rare and unique opportunity. :coolman:

    We would love to meet up with some of our European brothers while we are there!

    We will leave Nurburg on Sunday 7/1 and travel to Stuttgart for lunch with a group from the German GT500 forum. After that we will head to our hotel in Schwangau for dinner and spend the night. The next day we travel to Nauders, Austria. After that it is Italy, Monaco and then thru France and back to the Netherlands.

    Looking at a map, seems the closest we will be is Stuttgart.

    Looks like we may have as many as 50 people meet us for lunch in Stuttgart!

    4 of the cars are loaded and ready to begin the voyage. The others are being staged in Baltimore right now for loading early next week.

    Trip of a lifetime! So excited!!!

    It is actually July 1st we are doing the lunch!

    Alberto runs the German group: Alle Kategorien - SHELBY Forum

    Seems like a great guy.

    We will be meeting up at the Milenwerks in Stuttgart.

    As we get closer I will start to keep the Shelby Run website very up to date with current schedules and happenings. Just watch Home Page for all the information!
