The famous F1 team sponsor has also put its name to soapbox racing. Red Bull Soapbox Race is an international event in which amateur drivers race homemade soapbox vehicles. Racers compete against the clock in a downhill race. Each hand-made machine is fuelled by nothing but sheer courage, the force of gravity and perhaps a little Red Bull.

Neuschwanstein castle is one of the most visited and certainly most photographed castles in the world. It was built in the 19th century by Ludwig II, King of Bavaria since 1864. The castle is located very close to the village of Hohenschwangau, about 20 minute walk by foot. Guided tours take about 35 minutes, and you will have to walk 170 steps up and down. The 15 rooms you see on the tour show astonishing craftsmanship and richness of detail. The woodcarvings in King Ludwig’s bedroom took 14 carpenters 4 1/2 years to complete. Walt Disney was inspired to design Cinderella’s castle in Disneyland after Neuschwanstein visit.
The castle is open daily April to October, 8am – 5pm, November to March 9am – 3pm. You are not allowed to take photographs or videotape the inside of the castle. Ticket prices run 12 eur regular / 8 eur reduced per person. ( children and young people under 18 are free )

Nobody expected this. There was no advance notice. There were no empty promises. There is no turning back: the future of motorsports began for Porsche in 2010. After several races we could well say: mission accomplished, theory substantiated. But that’s not enough for us. Our most important finding: Sports car can do more. Porsche is continuing to extend its performance and high efficiency competence via intensive development work in the field of technology. With the Porsche 918 spyder, the manufacturer of sporty premium vehicles is presenting a high-end synthesis of 2010\’s successful concepts. The two-seater mid-engine coupé 918 is transferred to a modern, innovative super sports car. The 3.4 litre V8 engine (500 hp/370 kW) is a development of the engine used in the RS Spyder Le Mans Prototype racing car. This is supplemented by three electric motors delivering an additional 218 horsepower (163 kW). The transmission is a 7-speed gearbox coupled to Porsche\’s own (PDK) double clutch system delivering power to the rear axle. This gives the 918 Spyder a 0–100 km/h time in just under 3.2 seconds and a top speed of over 320 kilometres per hour (200 mph). The energy storage system is a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery positioned behind the passenger cell. In addition to the plug-in recharge the batteries can also be charged by regenerative braking and by excess output from the engine when the car is coasting. CO2 emissions are 70 g/km and fuel consumption is 3 L/100 km (94 imperial mpg/78 us mpg).
