GP is growing and we are super excited to announce the next stage: early summer of 2023, we will open our new location in the sun – Mankei on the Großglockner Hochalpenstraße! A place to meet fellow drivers and all those who know how great this community can be -with the best coffee in the Alps -and big plans for our resident architect Ferdi!
The first Location
With Mankei, we are growing far beyond the GP ICE RACE – for the first time, physically. The move to the Grossglockner is the first step in a longer-term, multi-location strategy taking GP to new places. At GP locations, the car acts as the anchor point, but the concept goes (much) further.
At Mankei, visitors can stop for the best coffee in the Alps, great simple food and to meet fellow enthusiasts also driving on one of the most iconic roads in Europe. With this concept at its core, GP will travel across countries and continents. This is just a start!
May 2022 – We’re done hibernating! The snow has melted and the roads have been cleared for us to have fun together.
🚧 Mankei will be under construction this year. 🚧
This shouldn’t mean we’d have to wait another year to see the GP family again – So we kicked off the season with our Glockner Opening Drive on May 14th, 2022.
115 cars and even more amazing people joined the drive – proving a concept we’ve been working on for months. Whether drivers came alone, or brought a co-driver – everybody enjoyed a warm cup of coffee at dawn on 2,262 meters.
