Warm-up.



To get your head in any game, a warm-up is essential.

For those looking to gear up and hit the road fast, Porsche is offering half-day warm-up experiences as part of Victoria Day SpeedFest Weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. This exclusive warm-up experience is designed for discerning drivers who want to experience the fascination of a Porsche on a racetrack and practice essential race car driving skills. We'll simulate various situations you may face in everyday traffic and you'll practice how to brake effectively, change lanes and control over- and understeer.


Dates (half day morning or afternoon):   May 19, 26, 27 or September 29

Pricing:  $495  per person +taxes


Precision.



Two-day course for first-time participants.

Your Porsche is like a precision instrument. It reacts to every steering movement you make and puts it into action exactly. If you consider it the other way around, this means that the more accurately you steer, the more control you will have and the safer your driving will be. And that is exactly what is practised on this course. Precision training is the ideal basis for Performance training.

The first day of training focuses on how to handle the car and basic driving safety. At the same time, attention is paid to the potential dangers of everyday road traffic. Particularly important factors here are learning to estimate speed and being able to react quickly. You will practise taking evasive action and experience the effect that even slight differences in speed can have on the intensity of load changes, gradually simulating driving conditions in which the car threatens to oversteer.

The syllabus features an extensive and well-founded teaching of basic principles – with individual commentation of the learning successes in sections. The programme on the second day of training features a guided module where drivers can complete full laps of the circuit. There’s plenty of time for practising accurate steering, skilful braking and careful acceleration.

Peformance.



Two-day course for returning participants.

You’ve successfully completed the Precision level? Then welcome to Performance training, the next step on your way to achieving the greatest possible performance. On this course we will teach you more driving tips and tricks, and adapt your performance to the performance of your car. Expand your limits. No matter which Porsche model you are driving.

This driving safety course mainly concentrates on further improving your vehicle control. Participants should possess certain basic knowledge, such as how to find the most suitable seat position, develop optimum vision control and respond correctly when the vehicle threatens to oversteer at low speeds. Then we increase the pace – and your safety at the wheel.

In addition to a theory session geared towards performance driving and advanced exercises on driver safety, the first day includes a chance to familiarize yourself with the respective sequence of bends and find the optimum line. Intensive sections aim at further improving your command of the car, lap after lap. Accurate and effective braking when entering a corner and avoiding unnecessary steering inputs are primarily a question of practice. One of the main on-road training modules is ‘lapping’ – the opportunity to finely hone your skills over the entire circuit.

Porsche Track Experience instructors monitor your driving throughout and assess your progress at the end. However, here too, the emphasis is on improving your ability rather than driving at high speeds.

You must have completed a Performance training course before you can take part in the next level – the Master training.

Master.



Two-day course for advanced participants.

At Porsche, constant further development applies to car and driver. So, after several driver training courses with the Porsche Track Experience, how about the next level? Master. On this course you are supported by experienced professionals. Our Porsche Certified Instructors will accompany you through the whole program. And all of the instructors are experienced in racing.

You are already an accomplished driver, so we don’t need to cover the basics. Instead, we can focus on showing you how to drive more independently and quickly find your way around the track without the aid of cones and instructors. Naturally, this also includes identifying and following the racing line. You’ll also discover how this can be developed still further.

Training is conducted in small groups. You’ll also have plenty of time out on the track to put what you’ve learned into practice and continue to improve your skills – you’ll even receive one on one guidance on some laps of the circuit.
