Training Level: 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 two-hour warm-up sessions 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.

Warm-up dates: May 20 or 21



Training Level: Precision

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.
