This winter, take a course that helps you stay the course.

At Camp4, you'll learn to rule the road, no matter the weather.

When you hear the word winter, most people picture cozy fires, hot cocoa, and the peaceful serenity that accompanies the season. But here at Porsche, winter isn't for sitting still. Quite the opposite actually. It's the season where snow, ice, and other treacherous conditions serve as a whole new exciting driving experience. 

That's why at Camp4, we invite drivers to take on winter in a whole new way. Over several days, our instructors teach drivers to conquer the season on specially prepared snow and ice tracks. You'll learn to drive a Porsche the way it's meant to be driven with the skills that will make you a more confident and competent winter driver. 


Track Location:
Mécaglisse, Québec

  • Built for cold-weather testing and performance driving
  • Two circuits

Most people spend winter inside. This year spend winter inside a Porsche.

Mécaglisse, the Camp4 driving facility, is located in northern Quebec. There, you'll be pulled out of your winter doldrums and put right behind the wheel of a Porsche. Once you're in the driver's seat, class is in session. You will master snow and ice on several circuits, skidpads, and handling courses. It's the perfect setting to deliver an unforgettable experience that will redefine winter driving. 


Our expert instructors are just as integral to the experience as our sports cars. They are knowledgeable when it comes to sport driving and just as passionate about Porsche as you are, and designed a curriculum for drivers of all skill levels. 

When you're not on the track, you'll experience world-class meals, memorable accomodations, and all the beauty Quebec brings.
