2023 Willy’s Run DreamTrip Photos & Stories

Published by Kyle Watson on

Exceeding expectations and speed limits in the Hinterlands of Bavaria, Alps and Dolomites.

We just returned from what can only be described as a top 3 ADL DreamTrip! The adrenaline-fueled week started with tours of the Porsche Museum and Factory in Zuffenhausen, Germany. Then we hit the Autobahn in 4 brand new Porsche 911 4S to Kitzbühel, where we visited the Hahnenkamm Start Haus and had lunch on the terrace of looking all of Tirol. The fun was only getting started, as we drove over the Grossglockner Pass into the Dolomites at full speed. Then it was on to the Saslong and Innsbruck. Finally, we finished with 2 days at the Soelden opening Men’s & Women’s GS races where we watched with Bode Miller and the rest of the Peak Ski Family.  “Ausgezeichnet!”

“The Willy’s Run exceeded my expectations for sure.  Lots of history and information going through the Porsche Museum and factory.  The roads were all fantastic to drive 911’s on and the fall colors were out in force.  The Dolomites are spectacular, and the roads are twisty fun all around that area. The race at Solden is well organized and fun. The VIP area has excellent food, service and viewing for the race. Solden is a great race to start the stoke for the upcoming ski season. All around this trip has it all, highly recommended.”

“Driving around in our convertible Porsche through the Austrian Alps and the Dolomites in gorgeous weather was an amazing way to top off our 25-year wedding anniversary! Loved hanging at the rooftop Gondola deck in Kitzbühel overlooking the start of the Hahnenkamm. Yowzah! Too many experiences to express! It was a WILLY, WILLY fast and exciting Dreamtrip. Ferdinand Porsche would have been proud of our driving. Highly Recommend.”

“Just back from the exhilarating 2023 Willys Run Trip with ADL, and it’s been an absolute challenge to wind down—the thrill and energy of the adventure are still coursing through us. As newcomers to the realm of ADL Dream Trips, we embarked without a clear idea of what to anticipate. However, what unfolded during this journey was beyond our wildest expectations. All the experiences were truly taken to the next level.

What set this trip apart was its meticulous planning while leaving ample room for spontaneous, personalized diversions. ADL’s approach infused a unique, personalized touch that made every moment stand out. In classic ADL fashion, the pace was relentless, and every opportunity, was seized with gusto and the pedal was smashed to the floor board.

This was not merely a journey; it was an odyssey that surpassed mere expectations. The ADL Willys Run Trip isn’t just a vacation; it’s a heart pounding adventure.

Bist du wild genug?

“What a great trip!

Kyle did an awesome job planning out our days. From the Porsche museum/ lunch, to beers at the start Haus at Kitzbühel, group photo at the Val Gardena DH finish, or walking through old Innsbruck.

Every day had something new and fun. Not to mention VIP access to the best viewing spots at the Sölden races, and good hotels along the way. What Fun ! Then there was the driving. Oh, baby, those were some great roads. Two trips to 150 mph on the autobahn was enough to leave my palms and head sweating. But, it was the sprint up the Großglockner pass to dizzying heights that left me weak in the knees, and completely satiated. And the cherry on top might have been meeting up with 3 more 911’s, 7 total, for an extra romp up and down a few more side roads, farms and villages, to the delight of local school boys.

We might need to map out a few more Porsche excursions. Like endless lines of POW, once you’ve been bitten, you’ll be back. 

Many Thanks!
